BJH Comprehensive Health Services

Medical Plans
The State Health Plan (PPO)

The SHP offers the Standard Plan, the Savings Plan and, for retirees who are eligible for medicare, the Medicare Supplemental Plan. The SHP has networks of doctors, hospitals and other providers that will accept the plan's allowable charge as payment in full.

A subscriber must use network pharmacies. After a subscriber reaches the deductible, he pays coinsurance until the coinsurance maximum is reached. The plan then pays 100 percent of the allowable charge.

The main difference between the plans is the amount you will pay for premiums, deductibles, co-payments for office and emergency care visits, and your share of the cost for health care services.

BlueChoice and CIGNA (HMOs)

HMO members must use network healthcare providers, including hospitals, except in emergencies. Each family member chooses his/her own primary care physician, who coordinates care, including referrals to specialists.

BlueChoice Health Plan

Most services, such as office visits, well child care visits, routine physical and immunizations, require a copayment. BlueChoice has an annual deductible, which applies to some services.

CIGNA has no annual deductible. Members share costs by making copayments for some services. Both Cigna and BlueChoice prescription drugs are available from a network pharmacy for a copayment.

Dental Plans
Two plans are available:  State Dental Plan and Dental Plus.  BJHCHS Inc provides State Dental Plan coverage for active employees only.  State Dental plan offers diagnostic and preventive, basic, prosthodontics and orthodontics.  The Dental Plus Plan covers the same services as the State Dental Plan except orthodontics.  However, the Dental Plus plan offers $1000.00 additional allowance for covered services.

Vision Benefits
This benefit is provided through EyeMed and the hundreds of providers throughout the state of SC. This plan allows you to improve your health through a comprehensive eye exam, while saving money on your contacts, frames, lenses, and other eye care needs.

Money Plus Accounts
With MONEYPLU$, you elect to contribute an annual amount from your salary to be deducted from your paycheck, before taxes, to pay for eligible medical and dependent care expenses. As you incur eligible expenses during the plan year, you request reimbursement from FBMC.  MONEYPLU$ offers a Medical Spending Account, Dependent Care Account and Health Savings Account.

Basic Life
The agency provides $3000.00 basic life insurance for full-time employees who are enrolled in one of the medical plans.  Dependent and spouse life insurance is designed to help you and your family handle unexpected expenses as a result of an untimely loss of your spouse or child. Coverage must be elected and paid for by the employee.

Optional Life 
EIP has optional life insurance available to supplement basic life coverage.

Long-Term Disability Insurance
Should you become unable to work for an extended period of time because of sickness or injury, long-term disability (LTD) insurance replaces part of your pay, so you and your family have a steady source of income until you can return to work.  This benefit is provided at no cost for employees actively enrolled in the State Health program.

Basic Long Term Disability insurance covers 62.5% of gross monthly gross salary with a 90 day waiting period.

Supplemental Long Term Disability insurance covers 65% of gross monthly salary with a 90 or 180 day waiting period.

Pension Plans
Our 401(k) and 457 plans enable you to save for retirement and enjoy a tax break at the same time. Your contribution may be made on a pre-tax basis through payroll deduction. Roth 401K after tax savings program is also available.

Military Pay 
A military leave of absence shall be granted for a two week period of military duty/deployment during a time of engagement.

Time Off
The agency observes 10 paid federal holidays and a personal day off for an employee's birthday.  Employees who have successfully completed the 90-day orientation period will be eligible for three (3) weeks of paid time off (PTO) (prorated by quarter of hire).  This time can be used for vacation or personal illnesses. Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave to ''eligible'' employees for certain family and medical reasons. Employees are eligible if they have worked for their employer for at least one year, and for 1,250 hours over the previous 12 months.
