Benefits Benefits


At Edwards Lifesciences, we know how important it is for you to get the most out of your Edwards benefits. Our benefits philosophy has two primary goals: to create and maintain a healthy and productive workforce and to provide competitive, comprehensive, cost-effective programs while continuing to manage costs. We encourage you to take ownership of your health care decisions. That means understanding your choices, asking questions, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
