At Intrepid Potash, we believe that a company is only as strong as its people. Our continued growth and success are a direct result of the highly trained professionals who represent us, and we believe in rewarding them accordingly. The Intrepid Potash total rewards package is highly competitive, and provides the level of support and security you'd expect from an industry leader, featuring:
We provide competitive and cost effective medical plans as a part of our overall benefits program. The medical plans are designed to provide appropriate choices that meet your individual and family needs. The plan offers the choice of two PPO plans, the Basic Choice and Premium Choice Plans. The Premium Choice Plan rewards, with lower payroll contributions and out of pocket costs, employees who maintain a lower health risk status. Throughout the year, we encourage and support employees to improve their health status with healthy lifestyle programs and opportunities to gain eligibility to the Premium Choice Plan.
Employees enrolled in the medical plan will automatically receive dental and vision coverage. Sponsored through Delta Dental of Colorado and VSP, our dental and vision plans allow you to select the provider of your choice. Dental coverage features 100% coverage for preventive services, while both plans provide generous coverage for routine maintenance and required care.
Employees enrolled in the medical plan also receive generous prescription drug coverage sponsored through WellDyne. This plan features very low co-pays for both generic and brand-name prescriptions processed via mail order or a retail pharmacy location.
Every day of your life, you get to choose how to live a healthy lifestyle. Our wellness program encourages you to make informed decisions about your health. Intrepid Potash supports continued health with weigh loss assistance, gym memberships, diabetic drug coverage, tobacco cessation assistance and a Health & Wellness Clinic. We also offer Naturally Slim's program which lowers the health risks associated with metabolic syndrome.
