At Superior Thread, we provide comprehensive benefits to attract the best employees and keep them here. The following benefits are for all eligible employees of STR:
Medical, Vision, and Dental Coverage
Employee premium plans are available through Kaiser and Anthem. These plans, which can cover medical, vision, and dental, are paid for through paycheck deduction. An added advantage of choosing our Kaiser plan is that Superior provides each employee with a benefit card that will cover the first $5,000 of the deductible. Only the remaining $2,000 of the deductible is left for the employee to be responsible for paying. STR also organizes flexible spending accounts for both medical and dependent uses. These accounts are beneficial, as the portions of income set aside for FSAs are not taxable, which ultimately lowers the amount our employees spend on social security and medicare payments.
STR is committed to ensuring our workforce not only has access to standard medical, vision, and dental coverage, but also chiropractic options as well. We believe every employee deserves to feel comfortable on the job, which is why we utilize ergonomic equipment as well as make it easy for our workforce to seek out professional services to help them maintain their alignment.
STR goes above and beyond by providing our customers with a concierge service for health resources. We are committed to helping each member of our team get the most out of their medical benefits. While most companies simply direct health benefits questions to their HR department, STR uses our concierge service to assist our employees in navigating the complicated world of health insurance, providing thorough and easy-to-understand answers for questions like “How much do benefits cover?” and “How much will I have to pay out of pocket?”
Mental Health Coverage
