Tier 1 Veterinary Medical Center Employee Benefits Page


To build Alaska's premier veterinary hospital, we knew that it would take revolutionary thinking.

To us, that meant even though we are by profession treating animals - our business started with people.

That is why when we were building our veterinary hospital, we spent hours researching what DVM's, LVT's and other industry professionals wanted from an Employer.

What it came down to was, being appreciated.

That is why Tier 1 VMC offers competitive benefits for employees who want a "career" rather than a "job" in the veterinary industry.

Health Reimbursement Account

As Alaskans, we recognize that "one-size" does not fit all when it comes to Health Insurance. 

That is why we provide eligible employees with access to our companies Health Reimbursement Account (HRA). 

"Eligible employees can use their allowance toward qualified health insurance premiums and medical expenses.

Here’s how it works:

The eligible employee clicks “Get Reimbursed” in PeopleKeep. The software then walks them through submitting the information and documentation associated with the expense.

We review reimbursement requests within one business day.

Verified reimbursement requests are immediately available for the plan admin to reimburse, assuming the employee has an unused allowance." (https://www.peoplekeep.com)
