Summer 2019 Superlatives

James, Ashley, Tianna, Carmen, Brittany and Melissa
As a fun bonding activity in the office and to recognize our staff, we held a company awards ceremony.
Throughout the week, we casted our votes for categories such as Loudest Sneeze, Best Dressed and Most Likely To Survive The Hunger Games.
The results were shocking to our CEO Ken who doesn’t believe he has the messiest desk!
We continued to learn more about ourselves and each other by taking a personality test. Although some of us are in similar categories, we have a few rare personality types too!
Our belief is that by gaining a greater understanding of one another, we function better as a cohesive team.

Insurance Benefits We Offer

Employee Navigator Front Page

We’re proud to say that Astyra offers benefits for eligible employees and dependents!

Whether you want medical, dental, vision or supplemental we provide the option to enroll and pay through an automatic weekly payroll deduction.

Upon hire, employees are notified of their class determination which decides whether these benefits are available on the first of the month following 30 days of employment or on the first of the month after 60 days of employment. However, regardless of an employee’s classification, our group health plans renew annually on September 1. During the 30-day open enrollment period in August, employees can choose to end their coverage, make changes to their current coverage or enroll for the first time in coverage.

Other than those instances, employees are only eligible to make changes to their coverage if family status changes occur such as:

  • Loss or gain of coverage through spouse
  • Loss of eligibility of a covered dependent
  • Death of a covered spouse or child
  • Birth of adoption of a child
  • Marriage, divorce or legal separation
  • Switch from part-time employment to full-time employment

Please note, these changes must be notified to the Human Resources department and made within 30 days of the occurrence.

Leaving Astyra? No worry, we continue to offer insurance for up to 18 months after an employee’s position ends, if desired. Through the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA), we are able to continue providing insurance at the employees expense.
