Dental, Vision + Hearing, and Employee Assistance Program Benefits

The eligibility requirements are the same for the Dental, Vision+Hearing, and Employee Assistance Program benefits. You will be enrolled automatically if you have worked the required hours of covered employment and your information is up-to-date with the Benefits Administrative Office and the State.

Important Eligibility Information
  • You must work at least 40 hours for two months in a row to be eligible for these benefits. Once you have met this requirement, there will be a one-month waiting period after you turn in your timesheets and/or payroll vouchers while the State reports your hours to the Benefits Administrative Office.

Healthcare Cost Assistance Benefits

Carewell SEIU 503 Healthcare Cost Assistance Benefits were established to help homecare and personal support workers who work in Oregon pay for medical premiums and out-of-pocket medical expenses.

This benefit is available to eligible homecare and personal support workers who have Medicare or have purchased an individual Marketplace health insurance plan. Healthcare Cost Assistance covers up to $6,190 for out-of-pocket expenses for claims covered under Medicare or an eligible Marketplace health plan in 2020. It also pays for net monthly premiums for an eligible Marketplace plan, and offers reimbursements for Medicare premiums.

Important Eligibility Information
  • You must work at least 40 hours for two months in a row to be eligible for these benefits. Once you have met this requirement, there will be a one-month waiting period after you turn in your timesheets and/or payroll vouchers while the State reports your hours to the Benefits Administrative Office.
  • You may have to wait until Open Enrollment (Nov. 1 – Dec. 15) before you can enroll into a Marketplace plan and start receiving Healthcare Cost Assistance benefits.
  • If you report zero hours for two months in a row, you may lose eligibility.

Paid Time Off Benefits

Carewell SEIU 503 offers up to 40 hours of paid time off (PTO) benefits per year to eligible homecare and personal support workers.

Take the eligibility questionnaire to learn if you may be eligible for PTO.

Paid Time Off Eligibility

  • Where this questionnaire asks about your hours as it relates to eligibility for Carewell SEIU 503 benefits, this refers to bargaining unit hours. Bargaining unit hours are hours paid by DHS and/or PPL on behalf of your consumer-employer.
  • Because your PTO benefit is considered taxable income, the Benefits Administrative Office may be required to file an information return with the IRS regarding the PTO benefit paid to you. In order to complete this filing, the Trust must have your completed Form W-9.
