Medical, Dental, Vision Care, Rx


At Baxter Health, our medical insurance benefit is self-funded, which means that we pay for plan benefits and administrative expenses directly from our general assets. We offer competitive deductibles and copay rates, providing excellent health benefits for our employees. For services provided at Baxter Health, we offer incredibly high coverage, enabling our staff to benefit directly from the high-quality medical care offered right in their hometown.


In addition to medical services, we offer an excellent dental plan. This enables our employees to pay less for their dental care, and have lower deductibles when interacting with dental care providers who are part of this network.


Baxter Health also offers a competitive vision plan that covers a variety of services within-network, allowing our employees to enjoy a higher quality of life and reducing the costs that they must pay. This includes examinations and also provides discounts for more expensive lens options, and offers a discount on laser-surgery for vision correction.


Thanks to our in-house employee pharmacy, Baxter Health is able to offer a powerful Prescription Drug Program to help our employees reduce the cost of their prescription medications.

Critical Illness & Accident Insurance

At Baxter Health, we believe in providing the highest quality of healthcare for both our patients and our employees. We offer Critical Illness Insurance, which protects your family and assets from financial difficulties that would arise from serious health problems, such as cancer, a stroke, or heart attack. This insurance plan enables you to provide for your family by paying a lump sum benefit directly to you at the first diagnosis of a covered condition. This allows you to spend your money on what matters most, rather than having the payment work immediately to cover the costs of medical treatment.

Additionally, Accident Insurance is also offered to our employees, granting you help with expenses and bills that would come from an accidental injury suffered while away from work, no matter the severity. This insurance can pay a lump-sum benefit based on the injury suffered and the treatment needed, including emergency room care, X-rays, and related surgeries. This can help offset other expenses that insurance does not pay, such as deductibles and copays. Finally, the policy can pay you a small annual wellness benefit when you complete a covered health screening.
