ABOUT BENEFITS

Welcome to EPC Benefit Resources, Inc.! We hope the information you find here will be helpful as you continue in—or are enrolling in—EPC Benefit Plans for the 2022 calendar year. Employees interested in participating in an EPC benefit plan should speak with their church’s benefit administrator about EPC plans that are available to you.

The EPC provides five Medical Plan options to the staffs of EPC churches and ministries. Plans include traditional Platinum, Gold, and Silver Plans, as well as High-Deductible (HDHP) Gold and Bronze Plans with Health Savings Account (HSA) options. All five plans use the same nationwide unrestricted network of hospitals, doctors, medical practitioners, and pharmacies that are used by major national employers and health plans throughout the country. All include 24/7 telemedicine, prescription drug coverage, and wellness programs. Additionally, they provide special assistance programs to support those with chronic conditions, or who encounter medical emergencies or utilize high-cost medications. When you enroll in the EPC Medical Plan, you also are enrolled in the Prescription Drug Plan.

It is important to note that as we come together and share one another’s burdens, the EPC has established its own plans with customized coverages. Your premium dollars will never support procedures that are not consistent with our values as Christians.

The EPC also provides Dental and Vision benefits, as well as Life and Disability Insurance coverages. General information on all EPC benefits can be found in the Benefits Guide below. To learn more about any specific program, click on the blue text link or select the appropriate benefit in the grey menu box at right.
