Teammate Eligibility

Teammates in positions classified at 24 hours or more standard hours per week are eligible for medical and dental. Positions classified at 16 or more standard hours per week are eligible for vision, flexible spending accounts and Additional Benefits.* If you are unsure, review the Benefits Eligibility Guide.

*These benefits, as described, may not apply to monthly paid teammates. For details, please contact Executive Total Rewards and Physician Benefits at 704-632-0120.

Dependent(s) Eligibility

Eligible Dependents include your:

  • Spouse
  • Children up to age 26
  • Unmarried children of any age who are incapable of self-support due to a mental or physical disability, which began prior to age 26, who are primarily dependent on you (contact MedCost at 800-795-1023 for required disability certification forms)

Documentation is required to verify eligibility of all dependents being enrolled in the medical, dental and vision plans. It is considered fraudulent to cover non-eligible individuals on your plans. A request to verify new dependents will be mailed to homes from Dependent Verification Services.

To qualify as an eligible dependent for a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA), dependents must be claimed as a dependent on your tax return.

Start by reviewing the Enrollment Guide

Be sure to have the Social Security Numbers and birth days for any eligible dependent(s) you plan to enroll.
