Benefits

Our commitment to our associates includes the offering of benefit programs that are comprehensive, competitive and will meet the needs of our associates.

Some of our benefits include:
Healthcare for associates and their families, including eligible domestic partners
Paid time off, including vacations and holidays
Paid volunteer time off
Life insurance and disability protection
Retirement benefits

We take a balanced approach to the benefits we provide. Many benefits are company-paid, while others are available through associate contribution.  Specific benefit offerings can vary by location.

Health

Helping you manage your health is important — for you, your family and for AmerisourceBergen, which is why we are committed to providing employees with a comprehensive spectrum of benefit programs.

Medical Plans

AmerisourceBergen offers a number of medical options to our eligible associates*, giving them the flexibility to choose the plan and level of coverage that best meets their needs.

Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) Plans: We offer two HMO plans at most of our locations. These plans vary with the type of coverage that would be suitable for your needs. Under these plans, you must select a primary care physician and do need referrals.

Point of Service (POS) Plans: We also offer two POS plans in most locations. With these plans you do not need to select a primary care physician, and referrals are not needed.

Prescription Drug Coverage

Prescription drugs are provided through all the medical plans, with co-pays for both brand name and generic pharmaceuticals. The administration of the plan can vary depending on location and chosen medical plan.

Dental Plans

We offer two dental plans with differing levels of coverage based on your needs. Each plan covers preventive care and basic and major services, but the level of reimbursement will vary by plan.

Vision Plan

Vision coverage is administered by a provider and typically covers eye exams, lenses, frames and contact lenses. Laser vision correction pricing will also be offered by the provider.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)

You can contribute pre-tax dollars to a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to lower your taxes and help pay for out-of-pocket healthcare or day care expenses. The Health Care FSA allows you to set aside money for those expenses not covered by your medical, dental or vision plans. The Day Care FSA allows you to set aside money for care for your children or other eligible dependents.

Basic and Supplemental Life Insurance

AmerisourceBergen provides a basic life insurance benefit, and you have the option to purchase supplemental coverage for yourself, spouse or qualified domestic partner or children. In addition to the basic life insurance, AmerisourceBergen provides basic accidental death and dismemberment insurance. You have the opportunity to purchase supplemental insurance on this benefit.

Disability Insurance

AmerisourceBergen provides income replacement benefits for associates who are unable to work due to illness or injury. The company provides both short-term and long-term disability insurance, and associates have the option to purchase supplemental coverage on long-term insurance.

Business Travel Accident Insurance

AmerisourceBergen provides business accident travel insurance to full-time associates who may suffer certain serious injuries or die while traveling on company business.

Work and Life

We strive to help our associates find balance at work and at home. We offer a comprehensive lineup of programs that complements our healthcare, insurance and retirement plans.

Vacation, Holidays and Personal Days
We provide vacation days based on your years of service. In addition to vacation time, associates receive company-paid holidays and personal days each year to use at their discretion.

Other Leave Programs
We offer other leave programs including family and medical leave, military, personal and bereavement leaves.

Professional Growth, Training and Development

Career Development
We provide our associates with the training and tools they need to assess and proactively manage their careers. At AmerisourceBergen career development is a shared responsibility between the company, the manager and the associate with managers supporting associates in aligning their talents and identifying their developmental opportunities.

Leadership and Associate Development
Building a culture of strong leaders is vital for the continued success of AmerisourceBergen. We are committed to providing leaders at every level the opportunity to strengthen their skills by participating in challenging projects, best-in-class training, e-learning, live webinars and individual development planning.

We encourage all associates to identify opportunities to develop skills while completing projects or departmental goals, as most impactful learning occurs through on-the-job experience.
