Roper St. Francis Healthcare pays the full cost of Short Term Disability insurance for part-time and full-time teammates working 15 hours/week or greater. Eligible teammates hired on or before November 30, 2023, will be automatically enrolled in Short Term Disability insurance effective Jan. 1, 2024. Eligible teammates hired on or after December 1, 2023, will be automatically enrolled in Short Term Disability insurance effective the first of the month following six months of employment.
Short Term Disability insurance can help provide income protection to benefit eligible teammates who are unable to work due to a covered sickness or injury. After a 7 day elimination period, Short Term Disability benefits begin, paying 60 percent of the teammate’s base weekly earnings for up to 26 weeks. PTO may be used to cover the days out during the elimination period. The plan is insured by Sun Life.
Extended Illness Hours (EIH)
Extended illness hours, or EIH, is a legacy program that has been used for a teammate’s personal illness. Benefit-eligible teammates hired prior to December 16, 2023, accrue EIH based on years of service. The accrual rate is .0385 hours for each hour worked in a pay period up to 80 hours per pay period. The maximum accrual is 560 hours for full-time teammates (64–80 hours pay period) and 280 hours for part-time teammates (40–63.9 hours pay period). Prior to December 31, 2023, EIH can be used for personal illness following 16 consecutive hours of PTO or unpaid leave. If, prior to December 31, 2023, the teammate is hospitalized or has an outpatient surgery/procedure requiring anesthesia than EIH can be used immediately.
RSFH will freeze Extended Illness Hours (EIH) as of pay period ending Dec. 16, 2023, and convert those hours into dollars which will be allowed to “top off” Short Term Disability benefits (or cover the 40 percent difference between 60 percent of pay and 100 percent of pay). PTO may also be used to “top off” in the same manner if/when the EIH bank is exhausted. Teammates hired on or after December 16, 2023, will not accrue Extended Illness Hours.
