At Kindred, our employees are our greatest resource and our most valuable asset. You will play an important role in helping Kindred deliver quality care every day in communities across the country, and we are committed to offering you a comprehensive, cost-effective benefits package that meets your needs. Additionally, you deserve a wellness program that makes it easier to commit to a healthier lifestyle, and benefits that help enrich your life today and prepare for your future well-being – including life insurance, disability benefits, time off and a 401(k) plan.
Kindred is pleased to offer employees access to these important elements through our benefits package. Depending on your status as a part-time or full-time employee, the benefits package may include:
Employees can choose from three Health Savings Account (HSA) compatible options and two PPO plan options.
In addition, by participating in a medical plan option, employees have access to the following:
- Multi-faceted wellness program
- Health advocacy program
- Employee Assistance Program
- Telemedicine program
Health Savings Account (HSA)
With a Health Savings Account (HSA), employees can choose to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for healthcare costs. An HSA allows greater flexibility in how money is used, and allows employees to save money for future healthcare expenses because it rolls over from year to year.
Flexible Spending Accounts
Save money on your healthcare and/or dependent care expenses by using a tax-advantaged Flexible Spending Account (FSA). The money you contribute to these accounts comes from your paycheck before it is taxed, and you withdraw it tax-free when you pay for eligible expenses, which reduces your taxable income.
We are committed to rewarding employees who demonstrate and pursue healthy behaviors. Our wellness vendor helps employees lead a healthy lifestyle, achieve health goals and have fun at the same time. You receive tools, resources and support in losing weight, reducing stress, stopping smoking and making healthier choices.
We offer three comprehensive dental options.
We offer two comprehensive vision options.
We provide company-provided life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment coverage.
Supplemental Life Insurance
Employees may elect additional life insurance for themselves and their dependents.

Kindred CEO Ben Breier recently joined a group of more than 300 CEOs from some of the world’s leading companies in signing on to the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. By signing on to this commitment, Ben and his fellow CEOs pledge to take action to cultivate a workplace where diverse perspective and experiences are welcomed and respected, where employees feel encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion, and where best practices can be shared across organizations. In signing the pledge, Ben provided the following statement about Kindred’s commitment to inclusion:
“We believe that our greatest strength is the dedication and diversity of our teammates and their ability to make recovery and wellness possible for the more than one million patients we serve each year. Therefore, it is a top priority to attract top-rated talent and then commit to train and retain a quality workforce that reflects the cultures and diversity of the patients and communities we serve. By working together, we intentionally continue to build an inclusive workforce where diversity is respected and differences are recognized as a part of our strong culture. We are committed to treating each other with dignity and respect, as unique individuals with varied backgrounds and experiences. Whether providing direct care, cooking meals, cleaning a facility, or simply lending a smile, our employees are part of a diverse and talented team, without whom Kindred’s success would not be possible.”
