 Day to Day Needs
Most of us have day-to-day needs and expenses for medical, dental and vision care.

Taking advantage of these benefits also can help you pay for the cost of health care not covered by a Charter plan and dependent day care.
Charter provides medical coverage that can pay a significant percentage of your and your enrolled family member's medical expenses. The plan available to you depends upon the Charter location in which you work. More specific information about the plan offered in your location is available from your HR representative.
Charter employees can elect to enroll for dental coverage. The exact dental plan available varies based on location.
Vision benefits are included when you enroll in a Charter medical plan. The benefit, provided through Vision Service Plan (VSP) offers a low co-payment on eye exams and allowances for contacts and eyeglass frames and lenses.
Benefit Accounts
Also called Flexible Spending Accounts, Charter employees may elect to set aside money on a pre-tax basis for eligible healthcare and dependent care expenses that aren't paid by other insurance.
Employee Assistance Program
Charter provides our employees a confidential resource for help and referrals with emotional, medical and financial problems concerning themselves or their families.

Charter offers several basic and enhanced life insurance options so you can choose what fits your personal and family needs.
