  1. Employee Benefits

    The Centers Inc. has a generous benefit package for all full time and part time (if applicable) employees, which includes Medical, Dental & Vision, supplemental insurance plans, PTO, an observation of 9 paid holidays annually, free telehealth, 401k, life insurance and more.


    Our medical insurance is offered through United Healthcare (UHC) and includes 2 plan options; a traditional copay plan and a HSA plan which allows you to open a Health Savings Account. Both plans are heavily supplemented in part by The Centers which results in a reduced cost to employees. UHC coverage also gives employees access to additional wellness services, including an annual wellness visit which is covered at 100% regardless of which plan is selected.


    The Centers offers two different plans for dental through Guardian. Both options allow you to see a dentist of your choice, however, utilizing a Guardian provider allows for a higher level of benefit.


    Vision coverage is available through Guardian and allows you to use a preferred provider or a provider of your choice. If a preferred provider is used, you will receive an enhanced level of benefit.
