    Health Insurance

    ACA's contribution for employee medical insurance is $429.99/month which is the full cost of the Traditional Gravie/Aetna Plan 1.  This amounts to an annual benefit of $5159.88 in addition to an employee's salary.  Prescription benefits are included in all health plans.  If no insurance is taken, ACA provides $50 monthly to the employee.


    Health insurance options can be found in the 2023-2024 ACA Benefit Guide.


    ACA also pays for Life and AD&D for each employee.  A life benefit of $30,000 is provided at no cost and additional benefits are provided through AD&D if the event is accidental.
