Summaries of Benefits and Coverage

The health benefits available to you represent a significant component of your compensation package. They also provide important protection for you and your family in the case of illness or injury. Benefits-eligible Team Members are offered a choice of medical coverage options. Choosing which option is right for you is an important decision. To help you make an informed choice, the Summaries of Benefits and Coverage (SBCs) summarize important information in a standard format. This helps you compare across options.
