Employee Benefits 2021
We offer a health plan through Quartz for all full-time employees. Employees need to average 30 plus hours a week (60 per pay period) to be considered full-time.
Preventive care is covered at 100% and no deductible applies. For other services, the plan requires a deductible before eligible services are paid by Quartz at 80% until you meet your maximum out of pocket.
BSJ Corporation provides employees with an HRA to help offset the deductible. See HRA Plan for details.
This is a comprehensive plan for all dental services and covers preventive care at 100% in-network, with no deductible.

A Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) plan is a tax-favored benefit that helps both employers and their employees save money on the cost of medical expenses. This benefit is funded by employer money and allocated to employees to help defer healthcare costs. These types of plans help employers to decrease medical insurance premium by raising deductibles. These decreased premiums benefit both the employer and their employees by having lower monthly premiums/payroll deductions.
An FSA (Flexible Spending Account) plan allows you to use tax-free income to pay for your family’s out of pocket medical and dependent care expenses.

BSJ Corporation offers a 403 (b) Retirement Plan. The plan allows a person to deduct an amount from each paycheck. The pre-tax deferral option lowers your gross taxable income because the withholding comes out of the paycheck before your salary is taxed. The Plan also offers an after-tax deferral option called the ROTH option. With this option, your salary is taxed prior to the withholding for the Retirement Plan.
This benefit is available to employees from the first day of employment.
Employees are eligible for the company match of up to 2% beginning the first calendar quarter after reaching one year of service. See Plan document for details.
