Scripps also offers a futuristic perk: Employees can receive a DNA screening to determine their genetic risk for more than 20 health conditions. Participants agree to have their lifestyle changes tracked via self-reported health assessments at three- and 12-month intervals, with follow-ups conducted for up to 20 years. Employees, their families, and friends pay just $150 for the $2,500 scan.
Other pay supplements include identity protection insurance, college savings plans, take-home dinners, auto insurance, pre-school discounts, and more. Anyone who participates in the hospital's wellness program gets discounted health insurance -- and anyone who avoids taking a sick day for one year receives a week's pay.
