1.02.01 Associate Benefits and Support (Revised 6/2023)
Amerimed provides each Associate benefits based on their employment status. All full-time and part-time scheduled Associates working more than 30 hours per week are eligible for benefits enrollment on the first of the month following the 60th day of employment. The invitation is sent out approximately 20 days before your enrollment date via Traumasoft and is a required memo that must be read before an Associate can proceed to clock in. For Associates that do not utilize Traumasoft, it will be sent to your Amerimed-provided email address. Please see Section A below for a brief summary of optional benefits offered by Amerimed.
Two very important benefit Amerimed offers are available to Associates on the hire date: Peer Connect and Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
At Amerimed, we believe our associates are the driving force to a happy and successful work environment and
It’s about more than just a paycheck. A career with Amerimed includes an excellent benefits package for
Associates and their eligible dependents.
Employee Assistance Program
Amerimed offers a robust Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through our vendor, Thriveworks. We have a dedicated number for our EAP: 855-303-0034. Amerimed will pay for up to three sessions annually. If the Associate misses a session or all three without canceling within the 48-hr. window, Amerimed is still obligated to pay for the no-shows so those missed visits will count against the Associate’s available three appointments. Any costs associated with additional visits will be the Associate’s responsibility if the Associate chooses to continue services.
PeerConnect supports the mental health and well-being of every individual employed with Amerimed. PeerConnect is a custom mobile app that gives each Associate access to peer support, wellness tools, self-assessment, mental health focused programming and resources – wherever they are and whenever they need it. Upon orientation day, each supervisor will present the new Associate with the PeerConnect presentation and help them download the app if they wish to participate. PeerConnect does not replace proper mental healthcare but instead allows the peers on the support team to mentor and direct the Associate in need, often resolving the issue. If the Associate needs counseling, Thriveworks will be recommended, and the Associate may request Thriveworks counseling, or seek any outside counseling service of their choosing. It should be noted that Amerimed is not responsible for payment for outside counseling services.
Associates can choose from one of two comprehensive health insurance plans with varying levels of coverage. Amerimed covers a generous portion of the cost to make the coverage more affordable.
Associates can choose from two plans. One with orthodontia coverage and one without, which is a lower
cost. They are comparable in coverage, other than orthodontia.
Vision coverage is a very affordable option for Associates and their families. Coverage includes eye exams, contact lens allowance and frame allowance.
Amerimed also offers many ancillary coverage options that include short-term disability, life insurance,
accident insurance, hospitalization gap insurance, specified disease coverage, and cancer coverage.
Save for retirement through Amerimed’s 401(k) Plan with Standard pre-tax or Roth after-tax contributions.
Amerimed will match Associate contributions dollar-for-dollar up to the first 3% of your eligible earnings plus 0.5% for contributions of 4% and 5% maxing out the company match at 4% of salary deferral. Associates can choose from a broad spectrum of investment options and roll over any eligible funds from a previous employer’s 401k or qualified IRA account(s).
Amerimed desires for its Associates to have a healthy work/life balance. Paid Time Off is considered a benefit for full-time Associates and Is granted based on hours worked, with incremental increases in accrual rates based on years of employment. Amerimed offers sick, vacation, family care, and bereavement leave. See SOP 1.16.1.
