Our Flexible Benefits health care plan gives you the flexibility to choose the kinds and amounts of coverage that work best for you and your family. This flexible approach puts you more in charge of your benefits, and allows you to design a program that reflects your own personal circumstances.
Health Care Benefits
CVMC's medical, vision and dental plans are available to eligible employees, spouses or domestic partners and dependent children. Our medical plans, which include prescription drug coverage, offer the option of choosing between plans that cover both in- and out-of-network providers.
Voluntary Vision Benefits
You can purchase additional coverage to help pay for the cost of eye glasses and contact lenses, above the basic coverage offered in our medical plan.
Flexible Spending Accounts
You can set aside a portion of your earnings before taxes to pay certain health care and childcare expenses. This can save you significant money.
CVMC employees can participate in the 403(b) Retirement Plan immediately. Our 403(b) plan is open to full-time, part-time and per diem employees. Full-time employees become eligible for employer contributions once they have completed 1 year of employment, and worked 1,000 hours or more in that 1st year. Employer contributions are subject to a three-year vesting period. You can change your contribution amount at any time.
CVMC helps you protect yourself and your family through life insurance and short-term and long-term disability insurance. Basic coverage is fully funded by CVMC, and you can add additional coverage as desired.
Combined Time Off
CVMC offers a CTO program that groups all vacation time, holidays, sick time and personal days into one account to give you great flexibility and control in managing your paid time off. You begin to accumulate time off from the start of your employment or immediately upon becoming eligible. It is earned on each hour you work, up to 80 hours in a pay period. CTO is one of your most valuable benefits.
Employee and Family Assistance Program
Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides mental and physical health support services for you and the members of your household at no cost. The Employee Assistance Program offers help with a wide range of issues including conflicts and tension, depression and anxiety, family and relationship issues, financial or legal concerns, balancing work and alcohol or drug problems. All services through EAP are free and confidential.
Employee Wellness Program
Our LEAP Employee Wellness program promotes a culture that optimizes employee health and well being through health education and activities that support positive lifestyle changes, resulting in improved productivity and morale, and decreased health care costs. Programs offered throughout the year include fitness challenges, stress reduction workshops, financial planning workshops, acupuncture sessions and more. An on-site fitness gym and outdoor fitness trail are available to all employees. Generous financial incentives are also provided for employees who meet specific wellness participation goals.
Tuition Reimbursement and Personal Growth
CVMC provides many opportunities for all staff to enhance their skills through educational programs. In addition to free professional development courses, Central Vermont Medical Center supports ongoing education with accredited institutions of higher learning through tuition reimbursement programs.
The Central Vermont Medical Center Credit Union is on-site at CVMC, providing banking services such as ATMs, free checking, low-cost, convenient auto and home loans, and more.
Employees can use the hospital pharmacies to fill their prescriptions at a much lower cost ($0 deductible, then: $5.00 per 30 day supply, $10 per 60 day supply, $15 per 90 day supply).
