Employee Benefits and Rewards

When you join HCA Healthcare, you gain more than a job. You become part of a family who pulls together to care for, support and celebrate with patients and each other. One example of this support is our robust colleague benefit offerings.

HCA Healthcare rolls out new colleague benefits

As technology advances and regulations shift, the healthcare industry is rapidly changing. The one altruistic constant for HCA Healthcare’s more than 270,000 colleagues is the desire to improve our patients’ lives through compassionate, innovative care. Inspired by this patient-centered culture, HCA Healthcare has committed up to $300 million to our incredible team members.


Health benefits

Medical plans

Medical benefits are available to full-time and part-time employees. HCA shares the cost of coverage for full-time employees. All medical options cover preventive care, such as routine physical exams, well-child care and immunizations, behavioral health and prescription drugs.


Generic drugs are available for copay. You can expect to pay coinsurance (a percentage of the cost) for brand-name medicines. Prescription drug coverage under an HMO or POS varies by plan.


Available dental plans cover preventive, basic and major dental care.


The vision plan provides benefits for eye exams, lenses, frames and laser correction surgery, as well as the opportunity to save on replacement eyeglasses, sunglasses and other eye care items.

Employee assistance program

All HCA-affiliated employees have access to an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), a confidential counselling and referral service which provides personal, legal and financial services.



HCA's Financial Prosperity program offers one-hour classes on topics such as breaking free from debt, building wealth with investments and retiring with the money you need. Classes are offered in confidential one-on-one sessions with a certified financial instructor and via personalized e-mail access to a financial advisor.

Reimbursement accounts

HCA-affiliated facilities offer competitive medical and wellness programs. However, we know that you may encounter out-of-pocket expenses such as coinsurance, copays and deductibles. To help you cover healthcare and dependent care expenses you face during the year, the following tax-advantaged reimbursement accounts are available:

Health reimbursement account

Up to $500 in Wellness Credits to pay for eligible out-of-pocket medical, dental, prescription drug and vision expenses including deductibles, copays, orthodontic care, coinsurance, prescription glasses, contact lenses and even laser eye surgery

Healthcare flexible spending account

Up to $5,000 toward eligible out-of-pocket medical, dental, vision and prescription expenses including copays, coinsurance and deductibles

Day care flexible spending account

Up to $5000 for eligible dependent care expenses incurred while you are at work. This includes day care for a dependent child under 13 or the care of a disabled adult dependent who is physically or mentally unable to care for themselves

Adoption assistance

You may receive reimbursement for expenses associated with the adoption of a child, including agency fees, attorney fees and travel expenses

CorePlus benefits

A package of voluntary benefits that include legal benefits, short-term disability, long-term care, voluntary permanent life insurance, auto and home insurance and pet insurance


HCA 401(K)

This plan combines contributions from your facility with your own contributions to help you save for the future. You may save as much as 50 percent of your gross pay through payroll deduction, up to the IRS maximum. Employees age 50 or older may take additional "catch-up" contributions up to the IRS limit.

The plan will provide a 100 percent match for your contributions (from three to nine percent of pay) based on your years of vested service. That means for every dollar you save (up to the matching limit), your facility contributes a dollar, giving you a better chance to meet your retirement goals.

You will be automatically enrolled in the 401(k) plan on the first day following two months of service. Your contribution rate will begin at three percent of pay and increase by one percent in January of each year until it reaches 15 percent, or you actively choose another rate, or opt out of the plan.

Life and disability benefits

Life insurance

HCA offers two types of employee life insurance:

Basic term life

Basic life insurance covers you at one times your base pay, and is provided to you by your facility

Supplemental term life

Supplemental life insurance allows you to choose an additional amount of coverage equal to one to five times your base pay. The price you pay for this coverage depends on your age and salary

Long-term disability

This coverage provides income protection if you become totally disabled and are unable to work for an extended period of time
