2017 AFMC Paid Benefits

 

HEALTH INSURANCE

AFMC’s health insurance program includes an exceptional wellness component that pays a generous amount of the insurance premiums for employees and their spouses who participate in annual health screenings.  The screenings include a finger-prick lipid panel for cholesterol, waist measurement, blood pressure reading and nicotine screening.

Employees, their spouses and their eligible dependents, including dependents to age 26, are insured through the AFMC Employee-Funded Plan. The plan features a $25 primary care physician and $35 specialty copay, $500 individual and $1,000 family deductible, prescription drug benefits, $2,000 out-of-pocket maximum and 100 percent payment for childhood immunizations. Coverage is effective the first of the month following the date of hire.

DENTAL INSURANCE

AFMC pays 80 percent of dental insurance premiums for our employees, their spouses and their eligible dependents, including dependents to age 26. Employees are insured through the AFMC Employee-Funded Plan. The plan features a $50 deductible per family member and pays 100 percent of diagnostic and preventive services, 80 percent of basic restorative work, 50 percent per schedule for major restorative work, and a $1,500 annual maximum. Orthodontic coverage is limited to 50 percent of eligible charges with a $1,500 lifetime maximum. Coverage is effective the first of the month following the date of hire.

PENSION PLAN

All employees receive a safe-harbor contribution of 3 percent of earnings to the company 401K pension plan, beginning at the date of employment. Employees who are at least 21 years old become eligible for an additional 1 percent contribution on the first of the month following their one-year anniversary. The safe-harbor contribution is immediately 100 percent vested (owned by the employee) and the additional 1 percent contribution vests on a five-year schedule. In addition, employees are eligible to make tax-deferred contributions to the plan beginning at their date of employment.
