Benefits Highlights 

As an organization that strives to be an excellent employer, we recognize the importance of providing employees with quality benefit plans. After all, the success of CVPH is a direct result of the effort and skill of our employees.

Eligibility for each program may be dependent on employment status, work schedule or other factors. The following is a brief summary of the benefit programs available to CVPH  employees.

Health Insurance
Health Insurance is available to all full-time and part-time employees. CVPH utilizes a high deductible health insurance plan and may contribute to employees’ related Health Savings Accounts.

Dental Insurance
Dental Insurance may be purchased by employees with pre-tax dollars. The SEIU 1199 union offers an additional plan option for their members.

Flexible Benefit Plan
The Flexible Benefit Plan is a program to help full and part-time employees defray the costs of health insurance premiums, qualified medical expenses and qualifying dependent (child or elder) care expenses. This Plan includes benefit dollars provided by the hospital, and an employee may make additional voluntary contributions to use for these costs.

Life Insurance
CVPH provides Life Insurance (at 2x base compensation) and accidental death and dismemberment coverage for full and part-time employees. An employee may purchase supplemental lifeinsurance for him/herself, spouse, children and/or grandchildren.

Combined Time Off
Paid time off includes vacation, personal, sick and holiday (8 per year) time. Available amounts and accrual rates vary by position and longevity at the hospital. Additional leave categories include bereavement and jury duty.

Retirement Benefits
NYSNA union, management and non-union employees: CVPH contributes a defined contribution amount to a supplemental tax deferred annuity (a 403(b) program); these employees may contribute further to the 403(b) with CVPH matching the contribution up to a set limit.

SEIU 1199 union employees: employees may contribute to the 403(b) program, and CVPH contributes to the SEIU 1199 union pension on behalf of these employees.
