Benefits & Rewards

Cherry Bekaert offers the following:

Healthcare and Wellness

Healthcare Coverage

Choose from three Open Access Plus medical plans administered by CIGNA. All three allow you to choose your own licensed physician, without a referral, within or outside the Open Access Plus network, although non-network fees will cost you more. Emergency treatment is covered 24/7/365, no matter where treatment is received.

Prescription Drug Program

Included in the cost of Medical Insurance and allows participants to purchase prescription drugs at participating pharmacies or mail order.


In-network, covered-in-full benefits (after applicable copay) include a comprehensive exam, eye glasses or contact lenses in lieu of eye glasses.


The dental plan covers services ranging from diagnostic and preventive care to orthodontia treatment.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Provide a way to help you pay for certain health care or dependent care expenses with pre-tax dollars. Because this benefit uses pre-tax dollars, a Flexible Spending Account is a great way for you to save money on your healthcare and dependent care costs, as well as increase your take home pay!


A wellness program designed for engaging in a variety of healthy activities helping us get one step closer to managing rising health insurance costs.
