Medical Insurance

Vision Insurance
Georgetown offers a comprehensive, employee-paid vision care benefit provided by EyeMed Vision care. Information about the plan, your eligibility and enrollment is available.

Flexible Spending Accounts 
The Health Care (HCRA) and Dependent Care (DCRA) Reimbursement Accounts allow you to pay on a pretax, salary reduction basis for eligible health care expenses not covered by your medical, dental, or vision plans and eligible dependent care expenses. Colonial HealthCare, Inc. administers the program on Georgetown's behalf.

Life Insurance
Georgetown provides life insurance at no cost for most employees. Additional insurance for you and your family members is available for a monthly premium.

Disability Insurance
Georgetown automatically enrolls eligible employees in short term and long term disability coverage.  These plans, administered by Matrix Absence Management, are designed to replace a portion of your income if you are unable to work due to illness or injury.  Georgetown pays the entire cost of short term disability (or salary continuance for academic employees); long term disability premiums are deducted from your pay on an after-tax basis.


Long Term Care Insurance
The Georgetown long term care (LTC) plan allows you to purchase individual policies through the Todd Benefits Group at a special group discount.
