Employees authorized 40 or more hours per pay period enjoy a wide range of both traditional benefits and leading-edge rewards. You will enroll online at the time of hire and each year during Open Enrollment. During enrollment, you will make choices for medical, dental and vision insurance, health care and dependent care spending accounts, life insurance, and much more.
The information below is an overview. Additional information is available through Fairview’s Employee Service Center, 612-672-5050 or toll-free 877-903-5050.
Fairview offers three medical plan options. Dependents are also eligible for coverage (proof of dependent status will be required upon enrollment of a new dependent). Coverage is effective the first day of the pay period on or after completing 14 calendar days of employment.Each medical plan includes an annual deductible. Once you’ve met the deductible, you will pay medical and prescription drug coinsurance until you meet the plan’s out-of-pocket maximum.
The PreferredHealth Narrow Network plans limit coverage to the PreferredHealth network of providers; out-of-network coverage within these plans is provided only for limited hospital and emergency services. The Open Access plan provides a larger network and broad out-of-network coverage.
In all three medical plans, you receive the best coverage by visiting Fairview, HealthEast, University of Minnesota Physicians, and Fairview Physician Associates providers and facilities. This group is called Enhanced Value Providers. View all provider directories
Office visits, prescription drugs, and hospital services are subject to the deductible. The exception is preventive care, which is covered at 100 percent (except at out-of-network providers). Note: In the PreferredHealth Narrow Network Plan, primary care services at Enhanced Value Providers are not subject to the deductible.Coinsurance amounts depend on the type of service (e.g., primary care, urgent care, emergency department, etc.) If you seek care from an in-network provider, you will pay either 10 or 20 percent of the cost.
Fairview offers two dental plan options, both administered by Delta Dental. Dependents are also eligible. Coverage is effective the first day of the pay period on or after completing 14 calendar days of employment. View premium rates for Fairview’s dental plans.
Employees have the option to enroll in the vision plan administered by VSP. Dependents are also eligible. Coverage is effective on 31st day of employment. View premium rates for Fairview’s vision plan.
Employees authorized to work 40 or more hours per pay period are eligible. Basic life insurance coverage is effective after 90 days of employment. Your coverage amount is equal to two times your annual salary rounded up to the highest thousand. Accidental death and dismemberment insurance is the same as your basic life insurance amount. Fairview pays the full cost of coverage. Optional life insurance can be purchased for your spouse and children. Coverage is subject to benefit reductions after age 70.
Disability insurance provides salary continuance in the event that you become disabled and are unable to work. Coverage is effective after 90 days of employment.
All employees are eligible upon hire to contribute to a tax-deferred 403(b) or 401(k) retirement savings plan with Fidelity Investments. This includes casual-status employees who would normally not be eligible for benefits. New hires will be automatically enrolled into the tax-deferred option at a three percent contribution level on the first pay date following 30 days of employment. Employees may opt-out of this automatic enrollment or change their contribution amount by contacting Fidelity at 1-800-343-0860 or www.netbenefits.com/Fairview. Any contributions made cannot be refunded.
Effective Jan. 1, 2019, a Roth deferral option is being added to the 403(b) and 401(k) plans. The Roth option allows you to contribute after-tax dollars to your account at Fidelity and make potentially tax free withdrawals in retirement.
For eligible employees meeting annual employer contribution requirements, Fairview contributes a discretionary (base) amount equal to three percent of your compensation each year to the plan. The discretionary (base) contribution is made annually, after year-end, and is subject to annual eligibility requirements.
For the discretionary (base) contribution, eligible employees are at least 21 years of age and have completed one year of employment with at least 1,000 hours of service.
In addition, Fairview will match employee contributions on a per pay period basis. Eligibility is immediate. Any contribution an eligible employee makes, up to six percent of their compensation, will be matched at 50 percent. This means you could earn an additional three percent matching contribution from Fairview (for a total of up to six percent employer contribution) if you contribute six percent or more to your retirement plan.
All employee contributions are immediately 100 percent vested. Fairview employer contributions are subject to this vesting schedule.
All employees authorized to work 40 or more hours per pay period earn paid time off (PTO) hours. Compared to traditional vacation and sick programs, Fairview’s PTO program provides employees more choice in when and how to use time off. PTO hours are used for both scheduled time off (planned and scheduled in advance), as well as unscheduled time off (unexpected time off, such as illness or family emergency). View annual PTO accrual maximums for your job category.
Fairview recognizes seven holidays: New Year’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. If you are authorized 40 or more hours per pay period and are required to work on a designated holiday, you will be paid at time and a half (1.5x) for hours worked.
To support the career aspirations of our employees and others, Fairview partners with numerous education institutions to provide health care education/training programs. In the past, we have sponsored the following educational programs: clinical laboratory scientist, health unit coordinator, medical laboratory technician, nursing assistant (basic and advanced courses), nursing station technician, perianesthesia (PACU) nursing, perioperative registered nurse, phlebotomy, registered nurse, surgical instrument processing technician, radiology technologist, and ultrasound technician. In some instances, Fairview pays you a wage while you complete training.
Through the tuition reimbursement plan, Fairview recognizes the importance of continuing education. After six months of employment at benefit-eligible status, benefit-eligible employees may receive reimbursement for up to 100 percent of the cost of tuition and books, up to $3,000 annually. Employees must agree to work at Fairview for one year after completion of course work.
