As of 2015, HCA employee benefits include medical plans, financial education, certain financial reimbursements, and 401(K) contribution match, as well as life and disability insurances. HCA offers various medical plans to both full-time and part-time employees. These plans cover preventive care, prescription drugs, dental care and vision care. The prescriptions plan offers copays for generic drugs and coinsurance for brand-name drugs. The company's vision plan includes coverage for eye exams, eyeglasses and laser eye surgery.
HCA offers confidential one-on-one personal finance classes to help employees, who can also contact certified financial advisors by email for assistance. The company also provides employees with several reimbursement accounts to cover certain eligible out-of-pocket expenses, including medical expenses, day care expenses for a dependent child or disabled adult, and expenses incurred in the adoption process of a child.
Additionally, an employee can contribute up to 15 percent of her payroll to a 401(K) retirement plan through payroll deduction, and HCA matches these contributions up to 100 percent, depending on the seniority of the employee. HCA also offers basic term life insurance to employees with coverage equivalent to their base pay. HCA employees have the option to increase the coverage by paying for supplemental life insurance.
