We at Valley Health System believe that providing preventive screenings and comprehensive medical, dental, pharmacy, and wellness programs are key to maintaining the good health of our employees and protecting them from future illness.
Medical Benefits are available through the Valley Health System's Self-Insured Medical Program. The in-network program provides the employees with the lowest co-pay for an office visit, with several Valley Physicians participating in the first level. The out-of-network option allows employees to utilize services outside of the network with higher co-payments. The plan covers many preventative services such as wellness visits and immunizations. A comprehensive prescription program offers both a mail order program for maintenance drugs and area participating pharmacies for short term therapy. Coverage is provided for the employees and eligible dependents. Employees share in the cost through payroll deduction.
Dental Care Benefits provide preventive, basic, and major coverage, including orthodontia. Employees pay a portion of the benefit expense through payroll deduction.
The Valley Health Pharmacy is located at the Robert and Audrey Luckow Pavilion in Paramus. All employees are eligible to use this pharmacy. Those employees covered through the Valley Health System Medical plan can also obtain a 90-day supply of maintenance medications.
Valley's Wellness Programs and Services offer ways for employees to improve their health, adopt a healthy lifestyle, and prevent illness. Services include Employee Occupational Health Service, free screenings and exams, pre-employment physicals, workers' compensation, sick care, travel medicine, adult immunizations, Weight Watchers at Work, smoking cessation classes, and various courses to improve health and fitness, including pilates, Zumba, and yoga.
The Employee Wellness Center at the Dorothy B. Kraft Center is a comfortable place to exercise. The Center has cardiovascular and resistance training equipment, and employees are provided with personalized exercise programs and ongoing health assessments. The Center offers convenient weekday hours, showers, lockers, and towel service. Valley shares in the cost of the Center, allowing employees to join at a discounted rate.
