Medical Plan Surcharges
New enrollees to the company medical plan will be required to complete a biometric screening within 60 days of your benefit effective date to avoid a wellness surcharge. For additional details, visit the Biometrics and Health Coaching page.
Based on results, employees and/or covered spouses may be required to complete face-to-face, telephonic or online health coaching. Employees and covered spouses who choose not to work with a Healthy Life Team Navigator (HLN), do not make contact with their HLN or do not complete biometrics testing, will be charged an additional $28.85 per week or $125 per month as a surcharge on top of your medical plan premium.
If you enroll a spouse in the Company Medical Plan, they will be included in a spousal audit for other medical coverage. If your spouse’s employer offers insurance and you elect to cover him/her on Mohawk’s Medical Plan, you will pay an additional $125 per month in medical contributions.
*New hires and those new to the medical plan as a result of a Qualifying Life Event, please visit the Biometrics & Coaching page for details.

Healthcare Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Option
Employees enrolled in the Copay Plan and employees age 65 and older may participate in the healthcare Flexible Spending Account (FSA) which acts much like the Health Savings Account (HSA). You set aside money from your paycheck to pay for qualified out-of-pocket expenses for you and your covered dependents. And, you don’t pay taxes on this money. With an FSA, you decide how much you want to contribute each year, up to the legal limits. The money in your Healthcare FSA can be used to cover out-of-pocket costs, such as copays, deductibles, coinsurance, dental expenses, prescription glasses, contact lenses, prescription drug costs and over-the-counter drugs with a prescription.
