Health/Dental/Vision Insurance

To provide you and/or your family with the options and flexibility you need, Mohawk Valley Health System offers two health and dental insurance programs. We also have a domestic plan which includes discounted fees for using the MVHS hospitals and services.

Employee Pharmacy

Employees can fill prescriptions at cost if that amount is lower than your plan’s copay. Our retail pharmacy provides in-house prescription services to all Mohawk Valley Health System (MVHS) employees and their dependents with Excellus BlueCross BlueShield health insurance coverage provided through MVHS. From maintenance medications and mail orders to one-time prescriptions and over the counter offerings, the FSLH Retail Pharmacy is a convenient alternative to traditional drugstores!

Paid Time Off

Eligible full-time and regular part-time employees have various types of paid time off for use as vacation, personal time, holidays and brief illnesses. Employees are also able to donate hours to other employees in need due to medical or life circumstances.

Tuition Reimbursement Program

Employees can continue their education while working at MVHS! By enrolling in certain programs, you can be reimbursed for your academic tuition.

Life Insurance

Mohawk Valley Health System recognizes the importance of life insurance as a part of planning for your future. You will have three options available to you in terms of group term life coverage for you to purchase. These options include one times your salary, two times your salary or a flat dollar amount of $20,000.

Employee Assistance Program

Our Employee Assistance Program services are run locally by the Center for Family Life and Recovery. Life isn't always easy, especially when caring for patients and their families. Our employees can speak to a counselor at no cost to them through this program.

Employee Assistance Fund

The Employee Assistance Fund (EAF) provides assistance to employees who are enduring a financial hardship as a result of a catastrophic event in their lives. The EAF is funded through employee voluntary contributions to the MVHS Foundation (available through payroll deduction and direct contributions). Our "Casual for a Cause" program gives employees an opportunity to dress down on Fridays for a $2 donation to the fund.

Recognition Programs 

Our goal is to provide consistent and frequent recognition that promotes our values and honors the great performance of our employees. Through our MVHS Recognition website, employee-to-employee and manager-to-employee recognitions are able to be sent to each other instantly on computers or mobile devices. Employees can shop for high quality items in the online store with their reward points.

Domestic Services

Our medical insurance plan features a tier of coverage that is specific to discounted services provided at Faxton St. Luke's Healthcare (FSLH) and St. Elizabeth Medical Center (SEMC). The discount applies to all domestic care which is defined as a service provided by a FSLH or SEMC-employed provider or a service billed by FSLH or SEMC as outlined in this directory.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) & Dependent Care Spending Accounts

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) are a great way to set aside money to pay for expenses not covered by your insurance plans (except for insurance premiums). Mohawk Valley Health System allows you to participate in this account on an annual basis.

Retirement Savings Plan

Eligible employees receive tax deferred contributions for their retirement savings, with contributions varying from employer base contributions, employee pre-tax contributions and employer-matching contributions. Employer contributions become vested over time and employee contributions are conveniently deducted from your paycheck on a pre-tax basis.

Voluntary Benefits

Employees have the opportunity to purchase voluntary benefits at group rates through the convenience of payroll deduction. Voluntary benefits include cancer care coverage, voluntary short term disability, legal coverage and more!
