New Hires

Welcome to MCC Employee Benefit Programs!

Frequently Asked Questions

I am a new hire, what do I need to know about the benefits my employer offers?

Each employer participating in the MCC benefit plans may choose which plans they wish to offer. The employer also determines the employee contribution amount for medical, dental and vision plans. Please check with your employer as to which plans are offered, and their cost to you, if any. Optional life and the Worksite benefits are paid fully by you, the employee.

Please go to Plans and Programs to learn more about what each plan covers.
