Research continues to confirm that healthier people are better able to deal with stress, adapt to change, thrive in the workplace and enjoy life. MNPS wants to assist employees, retirees and their families in their efforts to improve and maintain their health. We strive to do this through:
A generous and competitive benefits package
Your MNPS benefits include health, life and disability insurance, as well as retirement benefits and more. Employees enjoy reasonably priced premiums and can lower their out-of-pocket costs by making healthy choices. MNPS also provides paid time off through holidays, vacation, personal leave and sick leave.
On-site clinics that offer high-quality, low- or no-cost health care with a holistic approach
The MNPS Health Care Centers offer a full range of primary care. Services are provided by Vanderbilt Health and include care for minor illnesses/injuries, preventive care, annual and sports physicals, women’s and men’s health, adolescent health, immunizations, lab work, chronic condition management, access to health coaches, and more. Additionally, the Employee Wellness Center at Berry Hill offers an onsite pharmacy, café and full-service fitness center as well as onsite physical therapy, behavioral health, acupuncture, chiropractic care and dry needling.

Reduced health plan premiums when you meet certain wellness criteria
Each year, employees enrolled in the MNPS health plan have the opportunity to pay the lowest health plan premiums by taking a confidential health assessment, a valuable tool that can help you improve or maintain your health. If you (the employee) take this confidential, online questionnaire each year by November 30, you will qualify for the lowest coverage premiums. If you choose not to take the health assessment by the deadline, you will pay an $800/year surcharge, prorated equally by the number of paychecks (20 or 26) you receive during the year.
Discount programs that let you save on health and wellness products and services
Many of our benefits programs offer additional discounts on products or services that enhance your health. Look for these discounts under each benefit plan description.
Taking the Cigna health assessment saves you $800/year on your health plan premiums. It also unlocks a program called MotivateMe that lets you earn up to $100 in gift cards every year. Here's how.
