The benefits offered by Acadia Healthcare are designed to promote wellness and provide protection for you and your family in the case of an accident or illness. Acadia offers your medical, dental, vision, flexible spending account and health savings account plans on a pre-tax basis.

Benefits will become effective on the first day of the calendar month following the completion of a thirty (30) day waiting period.

All health and welfare benefits with Acadia will end on your termination date or change to non-benefit eligible status. Full deductions will be taken for any day you were enrolled and covered under the plans during the pay period. COBRA information will be sent by the COBRA Administrator to your home address on file after your termination date.

Newly hired or newly benefit eligible employees must enroll for benefits within their first 30 days of benefit eligible employment.

All regularly scheduled full time or part time employees working at least 30 hours per week are eligible to participate in Acadia’s benefit program. Coverage is available for your spouse and dependent children. Proof of dependent eligibility will be required for any new dependents being added to the medical coverage. However, the company reserves the right to ask for proof of dependent documentation at any time. Dependents eligible for coverage in the Acadia benefit program include:


  • For Medical: Your legal spouse as long as they are not eligible for other health coverage through his/her employer.
  • For dental, vision and life insurance: Your legal spouse.


  • For all plans: Dependent children up to age 26 including biological, stepchildren, legally adopted children, and children placed with you for adoption.
  • Your unmarried dependent child who is totally and permanently disabled and who became disabled prior to reaching age 19.

If you experience a life event during the plan year, you may be eligible to make changes to your existing benefit elections. The election change is only permitted when the life event is consistent with the change requested. Examples of a life event include: marriage, divorce, birth/adoption or placement for adoption of a dependent child, death, loss of coverage due to your loss of employment or spouse’s loss of employment or benefit eligibility. You must complete the benefit change form and provide supporting documentation within 30 days of the event. See your local HR representative for required forms.
