Health Care Plan
Our Health Care Plan provides comprehensive coverage for full-time Associates and their eligible dependents. The cost of the coverage is shared between CarMax and the Associate, and contributions are made on a pre-tax basis.

Associates may enroll in the Empire BlueCross BlueShield Preferred Provider Plan (PPO), a custom-designed plan that uses the BlueCross and BlueShield networks nationwide.
