Penn Benefits

Health and Life Insurance

Penn offers comprehensive medical, prescription, behavioral health, dental, vision, and life insurance benefits to protect your and your family’s health and welfare. Penn pays the majority of the cost for medical, prescription, behavioral health and dental benefits, and provides one times salary in life insurance at no cost.

Medical, Prescription, and Behavioral Health

Choose the medical plan that works best for you and your family, selecting from four options: a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan, a Point-of-Service (POS) plan, a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plan, and a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). All plans except the HMO offer in-network and out-of-network coverage. All medical plans include prescription drug and behavioral health coverage.


Choose from two dental plans: the MetLife and Penn Faculty Practice plans. The MetLife plan offers in-network and out-of-network coverage. Both plans provide full coverage for diagnostic and preventive care, and substantial coverage for a range of other dental services.


Choose from two vision plans: the Davis Vision and VSP plans. Both plans offer in-network and out-of-network coverage.

Life Insurance

Penn provides one times salary in life insurance at no cost. Additional coverage is available at competitive rates. Life insurance coverage is also available for dependents.
