RHA also makes regular contributions as mandated by the NC Department of State Treasurer.

Optional 401(K) & 457 Plans:  Participation is voluntary. Contributions can be made on a pre-tax and/or after-tax basis per plan rules.  RHA matches up to a maximum of 4% of employee contributions.  Participants are fully and immediately vested upon enrollment.

Roth IRA: Participation is voluntary.  Contributions are made via payroll deduction.


Health Insurance Plans *

Medical: RHA offers two medical plan options.  Prescription drug coverage and an allowance for vision reimbursement are included with both plans. RHA pays a portion of the premiums for single and dependent coverage if elected.

Dental: RHA pays a portion of premiums for single and dependent coverage if elected.

Transparency of Coverage Rule: 

In 2020, the Department of Labor issued a regulation in regards to the Transparency of Coverage Rule. Among this transparency regulation, all non-grandfathered, group health plans must post and maintain their in and out-of-network provider costs on a publically accessible website file (in a JSON format).

The deadline has been extended until July 1, 2022.
