HCAOA and Associate Member National Enrollment Services (NES) want to remind member agencies about a benefit that could provide a tax credit refund for you and your staff. NES assists member agencies with employee earned income tax credits and voluntary benefit programs.
Employee retention in home care is a huge challenge, and turnover is costly. Agencies are continually exploring new ways to retain valued employees. One way to do that is to put more money in employees’ pockets. NES helps secure increased monies for lower paid employees through the IRS Earned Income Credit laws. In addition, the federal government will REFUND any earned income credit not claimed by the employees on tax returns for the past three years. NES will assist employees in determining whether they qualify for such a refund which could be as much as $1,000 per year.
The timing of this Government Tax Credit Program could not be more crucial as employees are struggling financially during this very difficult period of COVID-19. Providing these dollars from the Government goes a long way to help address your employees’ financial concerns…all at no cost to your company.
Finally, NES has designed an affordable voluntary benefits package, specifically for home care employees and their family members who normally cannot afford insurance. These benefits provide protection/coverage for the substantial out of pocket high deductible expenses that are included in both employer group plans and government exchange policies. This program has also proven to lower Worker’s Comp costs.
