In support of our commitment to the care and improvement of human life, HCA Healthcare offers the Student Loan Assistance Program to help employees reduce debt and achieve a financially sound future. This is just one way we Care Together — for our patients, communities and each other.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2019, we’re partnering with Bright Horizons EdAssist Solutions to offer a monthly benefit toward qualifying education loans for eligible, active full-time and part-time employees who have completed 90 days of service.
The HCA Healthcare Student Loan Assistance Program offers:
Monthly Benefit Payments:
After you have made your monthly payments, these benefits will be applied to your loan:
- Full-time employees: $150 monthly benefit
- Part-time employees: $75 monthly benefit
Financial Wellness Coaching: It is recommended that you start the program with free and unlimited one-on-one sessions with a Bright Horizons EdAssist Solutions financial wellness coach. You’ll receive an action plan to help you evaluate repayment and financing plans, make the most of the HCA Healthcare bneift and avoid or rehabilitate a default.
Easy Process: Bright Horizons EdAssist Solutions will submit benefit payments directly to your loan provider. You’ll also have 24/7 access to submit applications and view your account online.
