We work to ensure our physicians have the benefits that make them “Live Better”.

At the Elliot we offer the 457(b) deferred compensation plan to our physicians. Under this plan, participants may contribute up to the annual IRS maximum each calendar year on an income tax deferred basis. Physicians are eligible to participate in the plan immediately upon hire.

Employees enrolled in an Elliot Health System (EHS) Medical Plan have the option of using the Employee Pharmacy to fill their prescription needs. Employees who are not enrolled in an EHS Medical Plan may have prescriptions filled for a price that is generally the same or less than commercial pharmacies. Over-the-counter medications are also available to employees at very attractive prices.

If you work for a not-for-profit Elliot Health System employer, you may enroll immediately in this tax-favored savings program which offers you the advantage of saving money while deferring the payment of federal taxes until you begin receiving benefits.
EHS will make an annual employer contribution of up to 3% of your covered compensation to your 403(b) Plan account or a 403(b) Plan account in your name if you are not an active participant, upon meeting certain eligibility requirements. You become vested in this annual employer contribution after 5 years of qualifying service.
