Group Health Insurance
All full-time regular and part-time regular employees and their eligible dependents are eligible for enrollment in the Town's health, vision and dental service plan. Eligibility begins on the first day of the month following the date of hire. The cost for this benefit is currently shared by the employee and the Town. Regular part-time employees receive half of the costs paid by the Town. Employer and employee contributions are determined by the Town Council annually and are subject to change.
The Town's group health insurance is administered by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield through The Local Choice. The plan includes dental coverage administered by Delta Dental and vision care administered by Blue View Vision.
