Full-time regular employees who work a minimum of 30 hours per week are eligible for medical, dental, and vision insurance upon employment. A comprehensive prescription program offers both a mail order program and area participating retail pharmacies.

Advantage offers the option for employees to participate in a Flexible Spending Account program. Employees can set aside up to $2,550 tax-free to pay for eligible health care expenses that are not covered, such as co-payments, deductibles, prescriptions, dental work, vision care and certain over-the-counter items. For dependent care, employees can set aside up to $5,000 in a pre-tax account for payments to a qualified dependent care program.

An enhanced short-term disability insurance policy is maintained for regular employees who are required to be absent from work for medical reasons. Employees are eligible following 30 days of continuous employment in accordance with state law.

We also maintain a long-term disability plan which pays regular employees consecutively absent for a personal, disabling illness for more than 26 weeks.

A Basic Group Life Insurance policy is offered for all full-time employees. The cost of the plan is fully paid for by LBM Advantage.

Voluntary Benefits

Supplemental voluntary life insurance is available for purchase through payroll deduction for employees and dependents.

In keeping with this philosophy, we have established a reimbursement program for expenses incurred through approved institutions of learning. Employees are eligible to apply following six months of continuous employment.
