UMR is our medical carrier. You can enroll if you are hired as or become a full-time regular employee and at Open Enrollment or if you have a qualifying event. Medical benefits begin the 1st day of the month after (or coinciding with) your month of eligibility (ex: if you begin 01/04/20 your benefits would be effective 03/01/20). Goodwill offers enhanced medical benefits to employees who qualify by submitting a completed Physician’s Confirmation Form 2021 (PCF) to Human Resources during the first year after hire. New employees who wish to qualify immediately for enhanced benefits must submit a completed PCF by the 15th of the month before your benefits begin according to the instructions on your PCF form.  To continue enhanced medical coverage, the PCF form must be completed every following year by the end of Open Enrollment. Goodwill offers a vision reimbursement plan which reimburses for $300 per covered member per year. Preventative vision care is covered 100% for children with a limit of 1 “hardware” item per child per year.  The prescription drug plan OptumRX is through UMR. Prices vary within the plan based on several factors.
Dental
Delta Dental is our current dental carrier. If you are eligible and enroll in dental insurance, benefits begin the 1st day of the month after (or coinciding with) a month of eligibility.
