The Christ Hospital provides both short-term and long-term disability (wage protection) benefits to help pay a portion of your income if you become disabled and are unable to work. There are two types of disability coverage:

Short-Term Disability (STD)

Short-Term Disability coverage provides 60 to 80 percent of your base pay, for 6 to 25 weeks (based on your years of service).

You are eligible for Short-Term Disability after 180 days of continuous service if you are a full-time or part-time employee.

Long Term Disability (LTD)

Long-Term Disability coverage provides 60 percent of your base pay after 180 days of disability (upon approval of your disability claim), up to $10,000.

You are eligible for Long-Term Disability if you are a full-time employee. To view the LTD certificate click here.

Family Medical Leave

Family Medical Leave (FML) is a federal statute providing job protection and other benefits for an employee’s medical leave or a medical leave for a qualified family member.

An FML eligible employee has worked for at least one year and worked 1,250 hours in the past 12 months.

FML is an unpaid leave, but may run concurrently with the Short-Term Disability coverage and/or you may use Paid Time Off.

Under the statute, a spouse is defined as anyone to whom you are legally married, whether opposite sex or same sex. Civil unions are not considered legal marriages under the Family and Medical Leave Act.

If you have any questions about FML, contact Employee Health, - 513-585-4555 or disability@thechristhospital.com.
