Your Health

  • Zero-premium health insurance option: Full-time and part-time employees can choose from three health insurance plans. CMH offers a zero-premium health insurance option for employees who meet the wellness requirements in the CMH Wellness program. An employee contribution may be required depending on the coverage level. Options are:
    • Employee only
    • Employee and children
    • Employee and spouse
    • Employee and family
  • Dental insurance: CMH pays for part of dental insurance for full-time and part-time employees and their dependents with health coverage through CMH.
  • Vision reimbursement: Full-time and part-time employees can choose a vision plan. It reimburses the costs of contacts, glasses and frames.
  • Employee wellness program: CMH uses the ManageWell online portal to help our employees lead healthier lives. Employees who meet the program requirements have a zero-premium health insurance option.
  • Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D): Free for all full-time and part-time employees.
  • Short-term disability: Short-term disability coverage is available during annual enrollment. Employees are eligible for 60% of normal gross earnings if they qualify for disability.
  • Long-term disability: CMH provides a long-term disability program for full-time employees. It pays 60% of wages if you qualify for disability. Employees are eligible at the beginning of the month after one year of employment. Long-term disability includes the Traveler’s Assistance Program and Employee Assistance Program.
  • Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account: Set aside pre-tax dollars for certain dental, medical and dependent care expenses. A Flexible Spending Account has pre-tax dollars for certain medical, dental and dependent care expenses not covered by insurance. This benefit is payroll-deducted, and expenses are reimbursed upon filing a claim. A Health Savings Account is a type of personal savings account to pay certain health care costs. Save money and withdraw it tax-free for qualified medical expenses, like deductibles, copayments, coinsurance and more. You cannot contribute to an HSA if you have Medicare coverage. You must select the high-deductible (HSA Plan) health insurance plan to qualify for an HSA. You cannot enroll in both a Flexible Spending Account and a Health Savings Account at the same time.
  • Employee loan forgiveness program: Employees working in qualified clinical positions can apply for employee loan forgiveness. CMH/CMH Foundation will pay up to $5,000 a year for a maximum of $20,000 over four years. Learn more and complete an application.

Your Career

  • Professional development opportunities: CMH supports employees who want to gain more knowledge for their jobs. Options include local workshops, online webinars, conferences and more.
  • Career advancement: Career advancement is common. Many of our leaders started at CMH in entry-level positions. Then, they worked their way up in the organization.
  • Tuition assistance: Current employees can apply for the Medical Excellence Scholarship to pursue medical-related careers. Applications are due on the last day of February. Scholarships begin the fall of the same year.

Full vesting is in five years. After one year of employment, the employee will enter the plan on Jan. 1 or July 1, depending on the hire date.
  • Retirement plan with employer matching: Employees may contribute to the matched savings 403(b) retirement plan upon hire. Employees pay their contributions by pre-tax payroll deduction. CMH matches up to 4% of that contribution. For every 1 percent you invest, CMH will match .50 percent up to 4 percent.
  • Life insurance: CMH provides eligible employees with term life insurance coverage. Depending on their medical insurance plan, the insurance amount is one or two times the employee's annual salary. Employees can also select supplemental life insurance and AD&D coverage.
  • Voluntary term life insurance: Employees may buy up to five times their annual salary for employee coverage. Coverage is also available for spouses and children.
