You may be eligible for reimbursement of expenses incurred that are directly related to your Trusted assignment. This might include certifications not typically required for your specialty, a specific embroidered facility uniform (does not apply for specific color requirement only), or initial state licensure specific for a Trusted contract within that state.

We do not reimburse for items that you would need to maintain for regular employment as a nurse (e.g. critical care positions require ACLS and a critical care nurse would be required to maintain ACLS certification regardless of assignment.)

We also do not reimburse for travel or relocation to and/or from an assignment.

Please see below for more details about specific item eligibility. If your expense is eligible for reimbursement, please see "How to submit a reimbursement request"


Items that May Be Reimbursable:

Badges

Badge expenses for a Trusted assignment, if required by the facility, are always reimbursable.

Background Checks

Any expenses associated with background checks if required for facility compliance are considered reimbursable. However, background checks are typically managed by your Care Team Compliance Coordinator, so please message us to confirm final expense approval.

Certifications (New)

Certifications that are required by the facility but are not a standard requirement to practice within the unit/specialty are eligible for reimbursement. For example, it is expected that every licensed nurse has an active BLS to practice clinically, and thus any expenses incurred to obtain or renew a BLS are not eligible for reimbursement. If the certification is eligible for reimbursement, we will also reimburse for course materials required to complete the certification.

COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 Testing is reimbursable if a negative test was required for facility clearance during the onboarding process or if required for clearance after a facility mandated quarantine.

Trusted does not reimburse for ad hoc COVID-19 testing.

Drug Screen

Trusted is required to order and manage drug screens per Joint Commission requirements. If for any reason you received a bill for your drug screen ordered by Trusted, please send us a message via Inbox and we will work to resolve that ASAP.

Fingerprinting

Fingerprinting expenses are reimbursable if associated with state-specific background checks required for onboarding. The most common states requiring fingerprinting include Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

Fit/Respirator Tests

While Trusted typically orders and manages fit tests on behalf of Trusted Nurses, it is sometimes possible for a nurse to complete a fit test independently for timely completion. Additionally, any fees associated with on-site testing are considered reimbursable. Please retain proof of payment for reimbursement.

Flu Shots

While annual flu shots are typically covered under insurance at no cost, any expenses incurred are reimbursable.

Licensure (New)

Licensure will be considered reimbursable if obtaining the license is required for a Trusted assignment and the effective date via NURSYS or primary source verification is within 90 days of the start date of the contract. This includes re-instating a previously expired state licensure if the license is required for the Trusted assignment. Expenses associated with the license are also considered reimbursable.

Physical Exams

While Trusted typically orders and manages physical exams on behalf of Trusted Nurses, it is possible to have your physical exam completed by your primary care provider. If the physical exam documentation is deemed sufficient for facility compliance, Trusted will reimburse for any out-of-pocket expenses not covered by the your insurance. Trusted will not reimburse the cash value of the physical exam if covered by your insurance.

Scrubs

We will reimburse for up to 3 scrub tops if custom facility embroidery is required. In all other cases (including scrub bottoms), scrubs are not eligible for reimbursement. We do not reimburse if only a specific scrub color is required.

Titers & Vaccinations

Trusted typically orders and manages titers & vaccinations on behalf of Trusted Nurses. If you complete them independently with prior approval from your Compliance Coordinator, the documentation is deemed sufficient for facility compliance, and proof of payment is provided, the expense will be considered reimbursable.

Pre-employment Modules

Trusted Nurses will be compensated for hours spent completing Pre-Employment Modules (PEMs). You will be able to input this time into your timecard in the mobile app within seven (7) days of starting your assignment.

Mileage

Mileage related to travel between patients homes or facilities during a shift may be eligible for reimbursement. Please inquire with your Care Team for more details.


Items that Are Not Reimbursable:

COVID-19 Testing (Ad Hoc)

Trusted does not reimburse for ad hoc COVID-19 testing. COVID-19 Testing is reimbursable if a negative test was required for facility clearance during the onboarding process or if required for clearance after a facility mandated quarantine.

Certification (Renewal)

Trusted does not reimburse for renewal of an expiring credential.

Housing

Trusted does not cover the expense of temporary housing for travel assignments.

Licensure (Renewal)

Trusted will not cover the cost of ongoing renewals of a state license.

Malpractice Insurance

While we encourage every Trusted nurse to have their own insurance (malpractice or otherwise) for a number of personal and professional reasons, this is not something we currently reimburse.

Parking

Trusted does not reimburse for parking expenses related to working an assignment.

Scrubs

These are not reimbursable unless custom facility embroidery is required—if so, up to three scrub tops will be eligible for reimbursement.

Travel expenses

Travel expenses associated with completing onboarding requirements or relocating for your assignment are not reimbursable.
