Our employees play an important role in helping Kindred deliver quality care every day in communities across the country, and as such, we are committed to offering them a comprehensive, cost-effective benefits package that meets their needs. Additionally, our employees deserve a wellness program that makes it easier to commit to a healthier lifestyle, and benefits that help enrich their lives today and prepare for their future well-being – including life insurance, disability benefits, time off and a 401(k) plan.
Kindred is pleased to offer employees access to these important elements through our benefits package.
Depending on their status as a part-time or full-time employee, the benefits package may include:
Employees can choose from three Health Savings Account (HSA) compatible options and two PPO plan options. In addition, by participating in a medical plan option, employees have access to the following:
Multi-Faceted Wellness Program
Health Advocacy Program
Employee Assistance Program
Health Savings Account (HSA)
With a Health Savings Account (HSA), employees can choose to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for healthcare costs. An HSA allows greater flexibility in how money is used, and allows employees to save money for future healthcare expenses because it rolls over if it isn’t used!
Flexible Spending Accounts
Save money on your healthcare and/or dependent care expenses by using a tax advantaged Flexible Spending Account (FSA). The money you contribute to these accounts comes from your paycheck before it is taxed, and you withdraw it tax-free when you pay for eligible expenses, which reduced your taxable income.
We are committed to rewarding employees who demonstrate and pursue healthy behaviors. Our wellness vendor helps employees lead a healthy lifestyle, achieve health goals and have fun at the same time. They receive tools, resources and support in losing weight, reducing stress, stopping smoking and making healthier choices.
