Medical Insurance

There is a $200 deductible (maximum $600 deductible family coverage), with 80% coverage after the deductible is met. When an employees and/or a dependent with OVHD medical coverage uses our facility, OVHD writes off the 20% of covered charges and therefore, this 20% does not accumulate toward the maximum out-of-pocket. You may elect to waive medical coverage and still be eligible for PTO, sick, STD/LTD. Proof of current coverage through another provider is required. There is no lifetime maximum. Dependent children are covered until they attain age 26. They do not need to be unmarried or live at home. They must not have access to their own employer-sponsored health care, whether or not they have chosen to enroll.
