 Frequently Asked Questions


Question: Can I buy my CHS service time in the County's retirement system?

Answer: The County has received clarification from the North Carolina Local Governmental Employees’ Retirement System (LGERS) regarding the option to purchase your time with Carolinas HealthCare System for credit into LGERS.  The LGERS has determined your service with Carolinas HealthCare System may be purchased under the provisions of North Carolina General Statutes § 128-26(s) once you have obtained 5 years of membership service in your current LGERS account. View more information on this topic.

Question: What is the status of the competitive job interviews and hiring?
Answer: The interviewing and hiring for the competitive positions has been put on temporary hold to allow us to work on non-competitive job offers. We hope to resume the interviewing of competitive positions by early February.
Question: I am a 10 month employee transitioning to the County.  When will my benefits with the County start?
Answer: Your benefits will be effective July 1, 2013.  For the first summer, you will be billed for the insurance premiums because the County will not have the opportunity to collect these from you in advance due to the date of the transition.  We expect your first day of work to be August 7th and your first paycheck to be received August 23rd.  You will receive more detailed information about how the billing process for your insurance premiums will work as well as your insurance premiums that will be deducted from your paychecks should you choose to elect any County benefits. 
Question: What happens if I decline my offer and later change my mind?
Answer: The County is providing a number of benefits as part of this transition that are not available to other new employees including: an option for PTO transfer to the County, CHS Public Health service time credit towards vacation accruals, and eligibility for the tuition assistance program. Your non-competitive offer is a one-time offer. Should you choose not to accept your offer and later desire to work for the County, you are welcome to apply for a competitive vacancy. However, the transition benefits will not be available to you.
Question: I am a new CHS Pulic Health employee, when will I receive an offer?
Answer: If you have been recently hired and did not participate in the non-competitive, information sharing process, there is nothing you need to do right now. We plan to collect your information in the spring.
