If you are considering the life of a traveling nurse, you’re probably wondering what you’ll need to do about common benefits such as health, dental, and vision insurance. When you work with us, there’s no need to worry about taking care of that on your own. Our nurses are offered a comprehensive benefits package, so you take care of your patients while we take care of you.
Our benefits are offered through Blue Cross Blue Shield, which will provide coverage no matter your destination. You will have multiple plans to choose from, and your benefits will be effective on the first of the month after your date of hire. These plans include:
Major medical coverage
$10,000 life insurance policy at no extra charge
Ability to cover family and dependents
Your deductions will be taken on a pre-tax basis every week, and your chosen plan provides the minimum essential coverage required by the Affordable Care Act.
You will have a choice between two affordable dental plans, which are provided by MetLife, as well as two affordable vision plans offered by EyeMed.
EyeMed is accepted at most common vision practices such as:
Similar to our provided health insurance plans, dental and vision can cover family and dependents, and deductions are also taken on a pre-tax basis weekly.
If you are interested in life insurance, we do offer voluntary life insurance through Aetna, with your plan guaranteed issue when elected at the date of your hire. You will also have available options to select both spouse and child life insurance policies.
If you ever decide to terminate employment with us, your life insurance coverage can be converted to an individual whole life insurance policy.
We also offer accident, critical illness, and hospital plans through MetLife. This optional coverage will provide income if you find yourself unable to work due to an injury or illness that is not work-related. These plans can be used as a stand-alone policy or added to complement your health insurance benefits.
If you would like easy access to a network of over 14,000 planning attorneys, you can opt into a legal plan provided by MetLaw – a subsidiary of MetLife. These attorneys are available for:
