We’re the Employer You’ve Been Looking For

Presbyterian is known for its generous attention to employee benefits. The following is a summary of the benefits currently available to full-time and part-time employees.

  • Co-insurance Plan -- Takes a lower premium out of your paycheck, but will cost you more out-of-pocket each time you use services.
  • High Deductible Health Plan -- Takes the lowest premium out of your paycheck, but will cost you more out-of-pocket each time you use services.

Delta Dental Advantage, the largest network of Dental Carriers, provides preventive and diagnostic services paid at 100% of reasonable and customary charges. The PresStandard plan is subject to a $60 annual deductible per individual. This plan pays 80% for basic services and 50% for major dental, with a maximum benefit of $1500 per calendar year.

Healthcare Spending Accounts

Allows you to set aside dollars from each paycheck to help pay for healthcare expenses not covered by insurance. Since allowable expenses are paid for with pre-tax dollars, it's like getting a discount of 24-30 percent on these expenses.

Dependent Daycare Spending Accounts

Helps you pay for certain day care expenses for your children or other eligible dependents, with pre-tax dollars. This only covers dependent day care that is provided while you work and your spouse (if you're married) works or attends school full time.

Domestic Partner Coverage

Coverage provided to those who meet the following criteria: two unmarried individuals in a long-term relationship (minimum 12 months) with mutual commitment of responsibility to each other's welfare with shared financial contributions.

Long-Term Disability Insurance

Provided by Presbyterian at no cost for benefit eligible employees. The plan offers income protection if you are unable to work due to an extended illness or injury. If you become totally disabled and unable to work for 90 days, the plan will pay you 60% of your pay, with a minimum benefit of $100 a month and a maximum of $7,500 a month. Benefits may be reduced if you receive other sources of income or you return to work on light duty.

Short-Term Disability

Available after one year of employment at no cost to you. After one week of medical absence, benefits are paid for up to 12 weeks at 80 percent of pay and at five years of service, up to 12 weeks at 90 percent of pay.

The Education Plan of New Mexico

Through this plan, you may set money aside for your college or trade school education or for that of a family member. It allows you to open a college/trade school savings account to fund costs at most college and trade schools in the United States. If you have questions, please contact

Accidental Death or Dismemberment

This insurance pays your beneficiary a benefit if you die in an accident, and pays you a benefit if you lose an eye or limb in a serious accident. You may also purchase this coverage for your spouse, children, and/or the entire family.
