Total Rewards (Benefits)

The not-so-secret ingredient to Houston First's success is our people. That's why we support the health and well-being of all of our team members by offering benefits that, quite frankly, are difficult to top. Take a peek at a snapshot of benefits our team members enjoy.

Health

Medical Coverage

HFC offers two comprehensive medical plan options and picks up more than 80% of the cost.

Dental Coverage

Dental coverage options include preventive, basic, major and orthodontic care. Team members choose between a DHMO Plan and a DPPO Plan.

Vision Coverage

Vision coverage is included for free when team members get medical coverage. It includes eye exams, lenses, frames and contacts.

Health Reimbursement Arrangement

HFC reimburses team members with tax-free money to cover some medical, vision and dental expenses.

Flexible Spending Account

Team members can save money by making tax-free contributions to flexible spending accounts for health care and dependent daycare.

Life Insurance

HFC provides basic life insurance coverage for full-time team members, spouses and dependent children. Voluntary life is also available to give even more coverage.
