  1. Employee Benefits

    The Centers Inc. has a generous benefit package for all fulltime employees, including Medical and Dental insurance plans, an observation of 9 paid holidays annually, free telehealth, 401k, and life insurance.


    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.
