Employment Benefits

One of the largest health care system in all of northeastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota, Altru offers a comprehensive benefits package to its full- and part-time employees. Excellent benefits include a health plan, Cash Balance Plan and 401(k) or 403(b) retirement plans. Other benefits include a dental plan, life and disability insurance, education assistance, paid time off (PTO) and Altru business discounts throughout the region.

Health Plan Benefits

Altru Health System offers employees medical coverage through an employer-funded health plan administered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Dakota. 

If you choose, Altru also offers complete dental coverage through the Delta Dental plan. This plan covers 100 percent of most diagnostic and preventive care services, 80 percent of restorative services and 50 percent of major procedures and orthodontic services based on the allowed amount.

Retirement Plans

To help you enjoy a more secure future, Altru offers Altru Cash Balance, 401(k), and 403(b) retirement savings plans for all eligible employees. As an employee, you have an important stake in these retirement plans. Contributions made by Altru represent a value to you in addition to your regular income.

  • The Altru Cash Balance Plan combines the best features of a traditional pension plan with a hybrid-defined benefit plan. Altru contributes to your account each year, and you earn interest on your balance.

  • Altru's 401(k) Plan allows you to make before-tax contributions to a retirement account of your choice. With the 401(k) plan, Altru will add 50 cents for every dollar you save up to 4 percent of your pay, boosting the power of your retirement savings.

  • Altru's 403(b) Plan is an employer sponsored tax-deferred savings plan. You can invest before-tax contributions to a retirement savings plan of your choice. The 403(b) Plan also has a Roth option, which allows for after-tax contributions.
