Employee Benefits

Oswego Health recognizes that employee benefits are an important component of the total compensation package provided to employees, and are important for ensuring the health, welfare, and financial security of our employees and their families. We continually monitor benefit trends, and seek to provide a benefit program that meets the needs of staff.

Health Care and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts

Oswego Health is pleased to again offer you the convenience and savings of a Flexible Spending Account (FSA). Your FSA lets you save a portion of your income each year without paying tax on it (that’s the same as earning an extra 30% on that money!) to pay for qualified medical and other expenses. You must re-enroll each year to receive this benefit.

Life Insurance & AD&D

Eligible employees receive coverage at no charge equal to one times the amount of annual salary. Exempt employees receive two times the amount of annual salary. Spouse and dependent coverage as applicable also provided. Coverage begins after two months from date of hire.

Supplemental life insurance can be purchased as well.

Long Term Disability Insurance

Voluntary Short Term Disability Insurance & Critical Illness

Individual Short Term Disability Insurance is offered to all eligible employees working 20 or more hours per week who are actively at work. 

Voluntary Critical Illness Insurance is offered to all eligible employees working 20 or more hours per week.   Specified disease insurance can help by paying a lump sum payment directly to you at the first diagnosis of a covered condition. Coverage for spouse and dependent children is also available.
