Medical, Dental, and Vision Insurance

Denton County MHMR offers medical, dental, and vision insurance coverages to regular full-time employees. In addition, employee's dependent coverages are available on an optional basis.

Disability Benefit

The long-term disability plan provides financial protection for regular full-time employees by paying a portion of the employee's income (up to 60% of monthly earnings to a maximum benefit of $5,000 per month) while the employee is disabled. Benefits may begin the day after 90 days of continuous disability. There is no cost to the employee for this coverage.

Life Insurance

The Center provides life insurance equal to two times salary up to a maximum of $250,000 at no cost to regular full-time employees. Insurance at age 65 and older will be reduced for regular full-time employees. Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance is also provided at no cost to the regular full-time employee and is equal to the amount for which the employee is insured under the employee term life coverage. Dependent life insurance is also provided to regular full-time employees at no cost to the employee. Employees have the option of purchasing supplemental life, critical illness, and short term disability insurance through existing payroll deduction accounts.

FLEX 125 Program

Regular full-time employees may participate in the Flexible Benefit Plan, which corresponds to Section 125 of the IRS Code. The plan allows employees to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for medical, dental, vision and health related expenses, which are not reimbursed by an insurance plan. Employees may also elect to contribute to a dependent care reimbursement account through voluntary payroll deductions. Pre-tax deductions are made prior to taxes being withheld from gross salary.
