Personal care assistants (PCAs) looking for a great place to work should consider Accurate Home Care (@AccurateHmCare). It provides benefits to qualifying PCAs and has a healthy, award-winning corporate culture.
The company pays the industry standard $15.25 an hour for its PCAs. But for those who work more than 30 hours a week or log 1,000 hours within 12 months, it provides access to health care insurance, paid time off, a 401k match.
“We’ve had really positive feedback from our staff by offering an ICHRA (Individual Coverage Health Reimbursement Agreement), which means they are able to select their own health care plan, doctors and deductible to fit their lifestyles, and the company helps with a portion of the premiums,” says Nicoleen Meyer, Accurate’s vice president of clinical services.
“Perhaps you have a relationship with a patient already, maybe a family friend or a family member, and you’re providing those PCA services but not getting benefits,” Meyer says. “Work for Accurate. We’re able to provide you with a 401k match, medical insurance and paid time off. We hear consistently that our benefit package for PCAs is unique in a very positive way.”
Accurate also hears from newly hired PCAs and other staff that its culture is valuable as well. The company was recognized in 2023 as one of the best places to work in Minnesota by the Star Tribune.
“If you’re looking for an agency that’s going to stand behind you, appreciates hard work and appreciates compassionate caring for people making sure that we’re doing the best that we can to care for each patient, we’re looking for you,” says Jennie Krebs, Accurate’s director of clinical services. “We’re looking for people who are putting their hearts into their work, really care about the people that they’re caring for, have a positive attitude and want to be part of a great team.”
Accurate was the first home care company in Minnesota to offer its employees the cutting edge ICHRA. Its employees can use their partially-company-funded ICHRA to buy individual-market health insurance plans, including insurance purchased on the public exchanges formed under the Affordable Care Act. In many cases, these plans have saved Accurate employees close to 50 percent off their premium costs under the company’s previous group medical plan. This savings goes directly to them, providing extra cash to spend as they see fit.
