What Plans Are Available?

You’re well protected with NVIDIA’s healthcare benefits. We offer comprehensive coverage for you and your family, and we keep it affordable by paying the majority of the cost.

Your Medical Plan Options

You have up to five medical plans to choose from, depending on where you live. Some plan features are standard. For example, all of your options cover preventive care at no cost to you; all offer generous coverage for prescription medications; and all provide the financial protection you need in the event of a major illness or injury.

Other features may be unique to a particular plan. Picking the right plan depends on your healthcare needs and your budget.

All the benefits of a medical plan with a Health Savings Account, with the familiarity of the Kaiser network.

Your Dental & Vision Plan Options

In addition to major medical coverage, NVIDIA offers vision and dental benefits to keep your eyes bright and your smile sparkling.

Dental Plan Details

The NVIDIA Dental Plan gives you two options for coverage—a PPO and a DHMO. Both cover in-network preventive care (cleanings, exams, and X-rays) at 100% with no annual benefit maximum. The PPO plan provides three cleanings per year. Details on what you pay for basic care, major care, and orthodontia, both in- and out-of-network, is in the chart below.

Vision Plan Details

Vision benefits are available through the Vision Service Plan (VSP). You make a small copay at the time of your visit for certain covered services like yearly exams, eyeglass lenses, and contact lenses. You get the best deals when you use a VSP provider, and all you need to do at the time of your appointment is tell them that you have VSP—no ID card is necessary. Your share of the costs for everything from lenses to LASIK surgery is in the chart below.

Your Spending & Savings Accounts

For more financial protection, enroll in one or more of NVIDIA’s saving and spending accounts to complement your optional coverage.

Flexible Spending Accounts

NVIDIA offers three types of Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), which allow you to put aside pre-tax money to pay for eligible expenses for yourself and eligible family members (as defined by the IRS):

  1. Health Care Flexible Spending Account (Health Care FSA). Use this account to pay for eligible medical, dental, vision, and pharmacy expenses. You can contribute $120 to $2,600 in 2017.
  2. Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account (LPFSA). This account is only available if you enroll in the NVIDIA HSA, NVIDIA HSA Plus, Kaiser HSA or Blue HSA Gold medical plans, and is limited to eligible dental and vision expenses. You can contribute $120 to $2,600 in 2017.
  3. Day Care Flexible Spending Account (Day Care FSA). Use this account if you and your spouse work or attend school full-time to get reimbursed for care of eligible children under age 13 and adult day care expenses for your eligible family members. You can contribute $120 to $5,000 each year.

You’ll receive a Spending Account Card for the Health Care FSA or LPFSA. It’s a convenient way to pay for eligible expenses. Use it at any service provider that accepts credit cards.

Important! FSAs follow use-it-or-lose-it rules, per IRS guidelines. That means you must use the money in your account before the stated annual deadline or you will forfeit it.

Health Savings Account

If you enroll in the NVIDIA HSA, NVIDIA HSA Plus, Kaiser HSA or Blue HSA Gold medical plans, you get the added benefits of a Health Savings Account (HSA)—a savings account that lets you pay for eligible healthcare expenses using tax-free money. Use the money now to pay for care or reimburse yourself for expenses for you and eligible family members. Or pay your medical bills out of pocket and save the funds for later—even in retirement.
