Human Trafficking Statement
Employee Benefits

At Meridian Bioscience, our employees are our biggest asset—the single greatest contributing factor to our success. So we strive to ensure optimal, comprehensive “world class” benefits.

"Once you see how you are treated here, you never want to leave. I can't imagine being treated this well anywhere else." — Jason Bowman

Health and Welfare
Financial Security
Income Protection


We’re committed to providing the very best plans while also minimizing the impact of continued rising healthcare costs on our employees.

Medical Insurance
Our medical plans include three options: a preferred provider organization, a consumer directed health plan, and a health maintenance organization. We provide opportunities for healthcare coverage to all employees—and, historically, we have paid the majority of benefit premiums for an employee’s spouse and children.

Dental Insurance
Our dental plan offers an extensive provider network to meet employee individual needs. Coverage includes preventive and basic services in additional to major. As with medical insurance, Meridian offsets the impact in cost to employees by paying a large percentage of the premium.

We also offer an Employee Assistance Plan and a Flexible Spending Account.

"It's all the little things here that make this an awesome company. We're certainly not taken for granted." — Keri McNamee
