Summary of FY18 Benefits
Memorial Hermann provides comprehensive benefits for its employees. Benefits eligibility is determined by employment status.
Memorial Hermann offers two medical plans, the Memorial Hermann Care Plan and the Catastrophic Plan. A pharmacy plan is included with medical coverage. Both plans offer in-network only coverage.
- Memorial Hermann Care Plan – designed with comprehensive coverage and a deductible. This plan offers comprehensive health coverage from two provider tiers, the MH Preferred tier and the Basic tier. Employees can choose between either tier for care and have the flexibility to move between tiers throughout the year based on need.
