TTEC offers a wide range of benefit offerings, designed to meet your healthcare needs and how you and your family use care.  This page is specific to Digital Employees – if you have questions, please work with your Human Capital Business Partner for assistance.

This page is dedicated to help you, our employees, as a one-stop overview of benefit offerings and information needed so that your benefits journey is a simple and seamless one.  Benefits that you must actively elect included Medical (pharmacy and an HRA or HSA spending account* are included with your election), Dental, Vision, Flexible Spending Accounts, and if you choose, Voluntary Benefits and Supplemental Life and AD&D, and Disability Coverage.  Benefits automatically provided by TTEC include Life and AD&D, Disability for select groups, 401(k) and Deferred Compensation (if applicable), Employee Assistance Program, Virtual Healthcare, Special Programs, Company Perks, and our Health & Wellness Program.


You are eligible to participate in all benefits if you are a regular full-time employee working at least 30+ hours per week.  There are also benefits available for part-time and seasonal employees, which you can find here [link to Eligibility page]….You have 30 days from your hire date in which to make elections.  Coverage is effective the first of the month following the 30 days.

Pre-Tax Premium Plans

Our medical, dental, vision, and 401(k) benefits are considered pre-tax benefits, which allows employees to take advantage of the tax savings generated by having healthcare premiums taken out of their paychecks before federal, state, and FICA taxes are deducted.  When you enroll in these benefits and your premiums are taken on a pre-tax basis, there are specific IRS guidelines that outline when you can change your health care elections.  Unless you have a qualifying life event, you are only able to terminate or change your or your dependent’s election during the annual open enrollment period.

Qualifying Life Events (QLEs)

A Qualifying Life Event (QLE) is a status change that results in a gain or loss of eligibility and a corresponding gain or loss of healthcare coverage.  These events include, but are not limited to:

  • Marriage or New Common Law Partner
  • Birth, Adoption, or Legal Guardianship
  • Dependent Loses or Gains Other Coverage
  • Divorce
  • Death of a Dependent
  • You Gain Other Coverage
  • You Lose Other Coverage

Qualifying Life Events must be initiated within 31 days of the event by opening an HX Connect ticket via ASK Now.  Documentation of the qualifying event is required.  Failure to meet the QLE requirements or deadline will prohibit any benefit changes.


Medical, dental, vision, and Flexible Spending Accounts are benefits that you actively elect.  


You have choices when it comes to electing a medical plan – offered through UMR, each of our three plans come with unique features designed to accommodate how you use care.  UMR is part of United Healthcare and our network is UHC Choice Plus.  All three UMR plans include prescription coverage, administered by Magellan Rx.  You and your covered dependents are automatically enrolled in the Magellan Rx Prescription Drug Program.  There is no separate membership card, it is included on your medical plan card.  For information about your pharmacy benefits, visit the Prescriptions page.  

  • Primary Care Plan
    This PPO plan is the lowest premium, highest  deductible and out-of-pocket plan and includes copays for most services including office visits and immediate care options.  This plan comes with a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), managed by Optum Financial, that can be used for healthcare expenses.  You cannot contribute your own funds to the HRA, but you may earn dollars to it by earning the wellness incentive.  If you enroll in this plan, you’ll continue to pay co-insurance and your prescription drug expenses do not count toward your medical plan deductible.
  • Balanced HRA Plan
    This PPO plan is the highest premium, lowest deductible and out-of-pocket plan.  It also includes a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), managed by Optum Financial, that can be used for healthcare expenses.  You may not contribute your own funds to the HRA, but you are eligible to earn the wellness incentive, which TTEC will fund to your HRA.  If you enroll in this plan, you’ll continue to pay co-insurance and your prescription drug expenses do not count toward your medical plan deductible.
  • Choice HSA Plan
    This High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) is a consumer-driven  plan that gives you more control over how you spend your healthcare dollars by providing a Health Savings Account (HSA), administered by Optum Financial, that you can contribute pre-tax dollars to, as well as earn wellness incentive dollars funded by TTEC.  Your HSA is always yours, even if you leave TTEC or change medical plans.  If you enroll in this plan, you pay prescription drug costs in full until you meet your medical plan deductible.  Your prescription drug expenses count toward your medical plan deductible.

Visit the Medical page for health plan details, premiums, Summary Plan Descriptions (SPDs), Summaries of Benefits Coverage (SBCs), and more.  To learn more about Health Reimbursement and Health Savings Accounts, please visit here.

Anyone on a UMR medical plan has access to Quantum Health, our healthcare navigation partner, here to help you understand your coverage, find providers, assist with claims and billing, and so much more.  Your benefits must be in effect in order for you to create an account, but you are welcome to contact them at 855.497.1226 prior to then to obtain help with understanding our medical plan offerings so that you can make an informed decision on which plan is best for you.

Our dental plan is offered to encourage good dental health and provides 100% coverage for regular check-ups when using in-network providers.  We offer two plans, a Basic plan and an Enhanced plan, which includes orthodontia.  The dental plan is administered by Delta Dental of Colorado.  Visit the Dental page for health plan details, premiums, coverage, and more.  


Regular vision care is important to your overall health, especially given the amount of time we spend looking at our computers. Our vision plan, administered by Vision Service Plan (VSP), provides regular check-ups, frames, lenses, contacts, and more.  Visit the Vision page for a plan overview and premiums.

Flexible  Spending Accounts (FSAs)

Flexible Spending Accounts allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars from your paycheck to pay for eligible out-of-pocket healthcare and/or dependent care expenses.  The pre-tax nature of these accounts saves you money because you do not pay federal income of Social Security taxes on your FSA contributions.  Our Flexible Spending Accounts are all administered and managed by Optum Financial.

There are two Healthcare FSAs offered:

  • Healthcare FSA – this FSA intended for anyone electing the Primary Care or Balanced HRA plans, or a waived medical election, and can be used for health expenses that your plan does not cover, including medical, prescription drugs, dental, and vision expenses.
  • Limited Purpose FSA (LPFSA) – this FSA is specifically designed for participants of the Choice HSA plan, as the IRS does not permit you to enroll in a Healthcare FSA.  The LPFSA can be used for eligible dental and vision expenses that your plan doesn’t cover, and medical expenses after you’ve met your deductible.

The Dependent Care FSA helps you save on day care costs for children under the age of 13 and other eligible family members.

To learn more about how FSAs work, allowable contribution amounts, and eligible expenses, please visit the FSAs page.
