We’re proud to offer great benefits that support our interns while they share their talents with us. We offer interns a choice between a Cigna Preferred Provider Option and a Cigna Consumer Driven Health Plan with a Health Savings Account. In California, interns also have HMO and CDHP plan options from Kaiser.

Health Savings Account (HSA)

Available only to participants in the Cigna and Kaiser CDHP medical options, the HSA helps you bridge the gap to pay for healthcare expenses before you meet your deductible. You put money into your HSA, tax-free, and then you can use that money to pay for eligible healthcare costs for you and your dependents– also tax-free. The HSA is completely portable. If you leave Proofpoint, you can take the full balance of your HSA account with you to use for future healthcare expenses.
