At the moment, the employee welfare is being handled by AON. Medical is reimbursed 80% on a medical flex account, generally about $300-$400 a year for a single employee with no dependents. There is also a health flex account that can be used to purchase prescription glasses, gym memberships, personal insurance, etc that is also 80% covered. Around $700 per single employee with no dependents.
