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. 

Prescription Coverage

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

Finding a Provider

To avoid unexpected and higher medical charges we strongly encourage you to ensure that any provider you choose is In-Network.  Both the Core and High Deductible plans use the Cigna network. You can find providers in that network by searching the Cigna website and selecting the medical plan "PPO, Choice Fund PPO".
