We’re committed to helping you LIVE WELL by providing a range of benefits and coverage options that allow you the flexibility to choose what works best for you and your family. 

We offer comprehensive health and wellness coverage that ensures our employees have the care and coverage they need to stay healthy, build current and future financial security and maintain work-life balance. All full- and part-time employees (who work 20 or more hours per week) and their dependents are eligible to enroll in our benefits.

Health and Medicine

Our employees say that our medical, prescription, dental and vision insurance benefits are some of the best in the media industry because they offer competitiveness, affordability and choice. TEGNA offers two benefit plans designed to support you during the moments that matter most. In addition, our benefit options give employees the flexibility to choose any combination of medical, dental and/or vision plan coverage categories. 

Depending on the medical plan chosen, employees can contribute towards a Health Savings Account (HSA) to which the company contributes up to $1,000, depending on the type of coverage chosen.

In today’s mobile world, having access to healthcare on-the-go is important. Through Teladoc, employees have 24/7 access to on-demand board-certified doctors and clinicians for non-emergency or general medical care who are available through video, phone or mobile app.
