Medical, Dental and Vision Coverage
Micro Center associates can use the Preferred Providers Organization (PPO) network of physicians and hospitals (which includes a prescription card), and save money. Dental and vision coverage is also available. Micro Center offers Vision Service Plan (VSP) to all associates nationwide. The company pays the majority of the premium, and associates pay the balance each pay period with pre-tax contributions. Single or family coverage is available.
When you have a health concern, it can be difficult and time consuming to find the information you need. You are never sure if you should go to the Dr., the Emergency Room, Urgent Care, or "wait it out". One toll-free number connects you with a registered nurse 24/7 who can answer your medical questions, help you understand treatment options, find an appropriate doctor based on your medical needs or answer a wide range of other health care questions and concerns. NurseLine nurses have an average of 15 years of clinical experience and are an excellent resource when needed.
Critical Illness Insurance
Critical Illness insurance is a supplement to provide additional financial protection in the event of a serious illness. The policy is designed to help cover the many out-of-pocket expenses you or your family may face beyond traditional care and treatment. With the purchase of the employee policy, family coverage options are available.
Accident Insurance covers a wide range of injuries and qualifying events. The benefits are designed to help pay for high, out-of-pocket costs that may not be covered by traditional health insurance. There are a variety of family coverage options available.
