A comprehensive benefits package is offered to eligible employees, consisting of Medical and Dental plans (i.e. Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) and Dental Maintenance Organizations (DMOs)) as well as free-choice Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans. Additional benefits, depending on bargaining unit, may include: Life Insurance, Disability Insurance, Long Term Disability insurance, Vision coverage, a 457 Deferred Compensation plan, a 401(a) Deferred Compensation plan and a Flexible Spending Account with Out-of-Pocket expenses and Dependent care options.
