Voluntary Benefits - Short-Term Disability
Regular full-time or regular half-time employees are eligible. On-call pool nurses with benefits-purchase eligibility may also enroll in this voluntary benefit.
The short-term disability plan has two options. The first option pays benefits after you have been away from work for 14 days due to illness, injury or pregnancy. The second option pays benefits after you have been away from work for 30 days due to illness, injury or pregnancy. Both plans pay benefits for up to six months. You select the amount of your monthly short-term disability benefit at enrollment. The monthly benefit you select can be no more than 60% (up to $6,000 per month) of your monthly earnings. You should update your coverage amount each year during Open Enrollment. Premiums are deducted on a pre-tax basis, and coverage is portable.
