The other day at our staff meeting our boss stood up and said that there were going to be some changes with our healthcare plan. Naturally, I assumed it would be a decrease on services or that the changes would only apply to those with spouses or children.
Not the case.
Apparently my company set up an account to allow each employee to have a debit card with $1,200 to use towards co-pays, prescriptions, and even over-the-counter medications for an entire year. How generous! Our healthcare insurance already is amazing–free dental, vision, medical–but with this card, I probably won’t have to spend a dime on health-related purchases while I am with this company.
It’s a good feeling working for a business that cares about the employees… it almost feels like I got a another raise. :)
