HMH Offers 3 affordable medical plans to ensure that team members can choose the best plan that fits their needs. For new team members, benefits will become effective on your date of hire and you have 31 days to enroll. Medical/Prescription ID cards will be mailed directly to your home.

Benefit programs are complex and can be difficult to understand. That’s why we have engaged outside experts who specialize in understanding the technical nature of benefits and how to work with our benefit partners on your behalf to bring out-of-network resources to you. The Benefit Advocate Center can help you with:

  • Insurance Contact Information - Have you not received your insurance cards, need replacement cards or need to get in touch with an insurance carrier?
  • Explanation of Benefits - Is it unclear to you what your insurance covered on a particular claim and what your responsibility is?
  • Prescription/Pharmacy Issues - Is the pharmacy telling you that your medication is not covered or charging you full price? Do you need help getting an authorization on a medication?
  • General Policy Questions - How much PTO am I eligible for? How do I learn more about my 401k? What is my tuition reimbursement opportunity? Am I eligible for FMLA? I don’t understand my disability benefits.

HMH offers prescription coverage that includes in-house, retail, and mail-order prescription options.

Our Coordinated Care Program provides critical resources and discounts to help people live with chronic health conditions. Through this program, covered team members and/or dependents are eligible for the following benefits:

  • Free prescriptions related to the three most common chronic health conditions:
    • Diabetes
    • High Blood Pressure/Hypertension
    • High Cholesterol

At HMH we know that health and family comes first. We know that there will be times when our team members need to take an extended period of time away from work to take care of themselves or their families. Our different leave of absence programs give our team members peace of mind when they have to step away from work:

  • Earned Sick Leave (ESL)
  • Parental Leave
  • Personal Disability
  • Family Member Disability
  • Family Obligation Leave
  • Military Leave

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax favored account used in conjunction with an HSA-compatible health plan such as the Hackensack Meridian Health Basic Plan. The funds in the account are used to pay for IRS-qualified medical expenses such as services applied to the deductible, dental, vision, and more. The advantages of an HSA include:

  • HSA funds roll over from year-to-year.
  • There are tax benefits on contributions, earnings and distributions.
  • Long-term investment opportunities are available.

FSA is a simple and convenient way for you to make the most out of your paychecks. When you enroll in an FSA you can pay for health care and dependent care expenses and save money at the same time.

Health Care FSAs are used to reimburse health care expenses.

Dependent Care Accounts are used to reimburse expenses associated with the care of a dependent child or adult while you continue working.

You can enroll in any FSA during Open Enrollment or after you experience a qualifying life event (marriage, divorce, birth, adoption, etc.).

Horizon BCBS offers fertility and doula benefits for team members that participate in our medical benefits plan. HMH also offers adoption assistance and parental and family bonding leaves for eligible team members.

HMH offers two options available to help you quit smoking.

The Quit For Life Program is a tobacco cessation program that uses an evidence-based combination of physical, psychological and behavioral strategies. The program utilizes phone-based coaching, text messaging, online learning, medication and support tools.
