    The company offers health insurance, but it's pretty expensive and is a high deductible plan. Do research on high deductible plans and you'll understand this. It may benefit employees to go with their spouse's health insurance if they can because the health plan only covers asthma medication, but will cover other meds after the deductible is met ($5,000 for families, $3000 for single person). The dental and vision insurance is very affordable and absolutely worth it. They have a good 401K plan, as well as an employee stock purchase program to purchase Cerner stock at a 15% discount every three month through paycheck deductions. This isn't a bad idea either, but go with more invested in the 401K than the Cerner stock program (just good financial thinking). Cerner also has a BBQ every year in the parking lot where employees can enjoy some good food and beer, usually on a Friday afternoon. It's a good time and everyone looks forward to it.

    Cerner offers great benefit packages to their employees and families. Including but not limited to 401k match, stock options, and health insurance discounts by completing activities to improve and maintain your overall health.

    Benefits will end the very same day that you finish your employment agreement with Cerner. My wife suffered a miscarriage and needed and ultrasound a one day after I finished with them and they did not cover it. Although they take the money from your paycheck to cover expenses for two weeks, they will not prorate any claim that you may have after your end date. They never specify that in the orientation. They just tell you the good things about it.

    Great health benefits and work life balance. 401k match could be a lot better and lags behind other companies.

    I found it ironic that I worked for a medical software company and, as a contractor, had no medical benefits.
