Benefits

 

Pilot offers benefits to all Team Members, both Part Time and Full Time.

Full time is defined as working 30 hours or more per week.  Part time is defined as working less than 30 hours each week. Benefits will start on the first of the month following 60 days of employment. Team members must call to enroll in benefits prior to their benefits start date.

Employee Assistance Program: Pilot offers a FREE  Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to all employees, full and part time, and spouses and children. The EAP gives you confidential, no-cost access to a full range of services that can help you resolve issues affecting your health and wellness. Call to speak to an EAP specialist who is trained to consider how a situation may be affecting all areas of your life. EAP Specialists are available 24/7.

Medical:Pilot offers three different Medical Plans for full time employees to choose from.   Medical coverage is not available to part time employees.

In 2015, under PPACA (Healthcare Reform) you must have creditable medical coverage or you could be penalized by the government on your tax return.  If you do not have coverage through Pilot Flying J/PTL you must have coverage elsewhere to avoid that penalty.

All plans are through United HealthCare and are Consumer Driven Health Plans (CDHP) that includes a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA).  Pilot contributes an annual base amount. Team members have the opportunity to increase their HRA funding by completing an Online Health Assessment and a Health Provider Screening Form. Team members who complete this form also receive the preferred rate on their weekly premiums. Unused HRA funds can roll over from year to year.

All preventive visits and immunizations are 100% covered on all plans, and the only co-pays are for prescription. 

Teladoc:Pilot offers FREE access to U.S. board-certified physicians to all employees, full and part time, and to dependents who are covered by one of our medical plans.  This service is available 24/7/365 by phone or secure online video.  Non-emergency medical issues are handled efficiently and get you about your day.
