Dental Benefits:
Maintaining healthy teeth and gums and seeking professional treatment when dental problems arise is important to your overall health. The Sarah Bush Lincoln Health System Dental Plan offers coverage to aid in your dental health.

Vision Benefits:
As a participant, you and your dependent may receive the following vision benefits:
Examination - Every 12 months - $40 paid

Health Care Reimbursement Account:
The flexible benefit plan offers you a choice to participate in comprehensive health, dental and vision plans. However, as with any plan, there are some items that are not covered or are only partially covered. The HCRA is designed to let you take advantage of current tax laws and pay for these out-of-pocket expenses with pre-tax dollars. Any money left in your account, by law, must be forfeited.

Dependent Care Reimbursement Account:
The flexible benefit plan also offers you the opportunity to pay for dependent care expenses on a pre-tax basis.

Long-term Disability:
Sarah Bush Lincoln Health System will provide full-time employees with basic Long Term Disability coverage at no cost. If you become totally disabled, the basic LTD Plan will pay 60 percent of your base earnings up to a maximum benefit of $6,000 per month. Payments will begin after you have been disabled for 90 days.

Short-term Disability:
As a full-time employee, you have the opportunity to purchase Short Term Disability coverage to protect your income from the end of your waiting period to the 90th day when Long Term Disability payments begin. You can choose from two options:
Coverage beginning after 14 days of disability
Coverage beginning after 30 days of disability

Employee Life Insurance:
Full-time employees are provided life insurance coverage. You will receive a standard life insurance benefit of two times your annual salary. The benefit is provided at no cost to you and will be paid to your designated beneficiary in the event of your death.
