Carewell SEIU 503 Training and Benefits Guide

The family of training and benefits hard-won by SEIU 503 care providers continues to grow. So we have updated the Guide with information about new benefits including MyCarewell503, Carina, and Continuing Education courses.

Vision + Hearing

Vision and hearing benefits for no monthly premium.

Employee Assistance Program

Assistance and resources—from help with your taxes to free counseling—for dealing with issues that affect work, home, or family life.

Healthcare Cost Assistance

This benefit covers the cost of your net monthly premium for a qualifying individual health plan purchased through the Marketplace or for Medicare. It also covers up to $7,165 in 2024 in out-of-pocket medical expenses for claims covered under Medicare or an eligible Marketplace health plan.

Losing eligibility

You may lose eligibility for Carewell SEIU 503 benefits (Dental, Vision + Hearing, EAP, and Healthcare Cost Assistance) if you have 2 months in a row with 0 hours of work. After those 2 months, you’ll have a grace period of 1 more month before your benefits end. You will be notified by mail that you might be losing your benefits. These notifications also include information about continuing Dental, Vision and Hearing, and EAP coverage through COBRA. If you decide to stay on DVE benefits through COBRA, this means you will now have to pay for premiums by sending payment to our COBRA Administrator, Ameriflex.
