Health & Welfare Benefits at Hendrix

Medical Coverage

Hendrix College offers a medical insurance plan and bears a substantial cost of this plan for full-time employees and eligible dependents. Coverage is effective from the first day of employment. The employee can choose between two plans: The Core Plan and the High Deductible Plan. Selecting either medical insurance includes prescription drug coverage. A Core & High Deductible Overview & Comparison is designed to let you see plan costs for all groups and the most general coverage overview. (Please note that the premiums listed in the comparison assume you participate in Engagement Health).

Prescription Coverage

Prescription drug coverage is included as part of both medical plans.  For a complete list of covered prescriptions and the required co-pay please check the formulary.

Finding a Provider

To avoid unexpected and higher medical charges we strongly encourage you to ensure that any provider you choose is In-Network.  Please first use the Novasys Health Provider Search (preferred network) to see if a hospital or doctor is in-network.

If you need non-emergency access to a doctor outside of Arkansas and closely surrounding areas please use the PHCS MultiPlan search to find a provider who will be charged as in-network.
