Benefits for Emory Caregivers

In addition to the generous programming offered to help support employee caregivers, Emory provides family-friendly benefits to support working caregivers.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)

Flexible Spending Accounts can be used to help offset certain elder care expenses in some cases. If the person being cared for is legally dependent on you, services such as co-pays, medical supplies, nursing care, etc. may be covered under your FSA.

If you have questions about using your FSA to help with elder care expenses, you may contact either your benefits specialist at Emory at (404) 727-7613 or Aetna 888-678-8242.

Long Term Care Insurance (LTC)

Long Term Care Insurance is a type of health insurance that provides for skilled, intermediate, and custodial care in a private home, adult daycare setting, assisted-living facility, or nursing home, provided that the person needing the benefit is unable to perform certain activities of daily living without assistance. This type of benefit is not covered by Medicare and can be quite costly and difficult to obtain if doing so at a time of crisis or as an individual. Emory offers LTC as a benefit to its employees and their families at a reduced cost. It is best to explore this benefit upon hire or while still in fair health.

For more information on this benefit and how it can be useful to help pay for elder care expenses, you may contact either your benefits specialist at Emory at (404) 727-7613 or Unum at (800) 227-4165.
