Benefits at Headway are grounded in the concept of strong emotional health. Employees are empowered to choose the options that fit their individual needs. The options were designed to give individuals choice over how they use the services as well as to foster work/life balance. Our benefits include:
• Employee and family health insurance plans through Medica
• Health Savings Account (HSA) where Headway contributes $2,100 per year
• Employee Assistance Program
• Work/Life Balance with generous paid time off
o 16 days of PTO first year, increasing to 21 days in year two
o 10 paid holidays

The health insurance plans offered at Headway provide a framework to maintain a good level of health by fully covering preventative services and regular examinations. Healthy lifestyle incentives also make up a part of the coverage, and include savings opportunities for gym memberships, savings on healthy foods in grocery stores, special programs that offer insight into fertility and family planning, and a program to reduce the risk of a chronic disease such as heart attack, stroke, or diabetes.
Money placed into the Health Savings Account (HSA) has a triple-tax advantage of being tax free when deposited, can build up interest without taxation, and can pay medical expenses without being taxed. The account follows the employee year over year without penalty, and even after employment ends! Another incentive included with the medical coverage is the Healthy Rewards program that provides more opportunities to add to HSA by meeting monthly health goals in activity, nutrition, and sleep. Those rewards can equal up to $900 per year for the individual health savings account!
