Oncology Case Management & Care Package

If you (or your dependent with cancer) are a participant in Kaman’s Cigna medical plan, you are eligible to speak with an Oncology Case Manager throughout your journey with cancer. The Case Manager can help provide more information about your diagnosis and review your overall treatment program and medications. These individuals may also assess your home care, counseling, or nutrition needs as you undergo treatment. They’re also there for you if you need assistance selecting the right caregiver, treatment plan, or center of excellence, and will provide information on seeking second opinions.

When you choose to engage with an Oncology Case Manager, you will receive a care package, courtesy of the Kaman Cancer Support Program, which contains:

  • A sherpa throw, to ensure that you’re warm and comfortable when undergoing treatment
  • A weekly pill case, so that you can keep track of your medications
  • A personal health record keeper, which you and your caregiver can use to keep track of treatment
  • If a dependent child has received the diagnosis, a pediatric cancer-themed coloring book and crayons will be included in the package
  • Additional information regarding your specific diagnosis

Short-term Disability, Long-term Disability, and Family Medical Leave

Short-term Disability (STD)

If you are eligible, Kaman automatically provides you with short-term disability coverage at no cost. For every 12 months of employment, you will receive one week of 100% of covered earnings, up to a maximum of 26 weeks. At the end of eligibility for 100% of covered earnings, an eligible employee will receive 60% of covered earnings for the remainder of the disability period, up to a combined maximum of 26 weeks.

Long-term Disability (LTD)

If you are eligible, enrolled, and approved, LTD benefits will pick up where STD coverage leaves off, beginning after 180 days of disability.

Family Medical Leave (FML) Benefits

In addition to your STD benefits, you may qualify for FML benefits if you or a family member has a serious health condition that is disabling. To be eligible, you must have been employed a total of 12 months (excluding any 7-year gap in employment) and have worked at least 1,250 hours in the 12 months preceding your leave start date.

Depending on your state of residency, you may be eligible for other leave benefits in accordance with state regulations.

Intermittent Leave

Intermittent leave is FMLA taken in separate blocks of time for a single illness or injury. A reduced leave schedule reduces an employee’s usual number of working hours per workweek or workday.
