Employees’ health is a paramount concern at Orion. Recognizing rising healthcare costs, Orion will be offering a cross-border healthcare plan, Mediexcel, in addition to its traditional healthcare plans starting in 2019. The new plan offers a low-cost alternative for individual and family coverage with healthcare delivery at Mediexcel’s campus in Tijuana. The plan provides worldwide coverage, is Affordable Care Act compliant, and allows employees to utilize any emergency care or urgent care facility in the United States, with ongoing care being provided in Tijuana.
Orion chose Mediexcel after a deliberative process including analysis of the benefits provided, interviews with current employees, and a visit to the healthcare facility and meeting with Mediexcel’s chief of cardiology by two senior Orion employees.
