I. Introduction

Beginning on January 1, 2023, any eligible healthcare professional (hereafter referred to as “HCP”) will be automatically enrolled in the Rewards Program by Health Carousel (hereafter referred to as the “Rewards Program”).  From January 1, 2023, going forward, the enrolled HCP will accrue Earned Points for all Eligible Hours worked while on assignment. The monetary value of Earned Points may then be redeemed for rewards on the Tango Card website.

Any HCP who participates in the Rewards Program should read and understand the Rewards Program Terms and Conditions, as well as the Tango Card Terms and Conditions.

Though the HCP is automatically enrolled in the Rewards Program and will accrue Earned Points, they do not have to participate in the program or redeem Earned Points for rewards.

Banked Points: “Banked Points” refers to Earned Points kept in reserve for an HCP who is not currently on assignment for HCTN. “Banked Points” are held in reserve for 12 months following the last day the HCP worked for that assignment. “Banked Points” expire after 12 months. For more information, go to Section VIII “Banked Points and Points Expiration”.

Earned Points: “Earned Points” refers to the pointsan HCP can earn while on assignment. Earned Points have a monetary value, whichcan be calculated using the formula. For more information, go to Section IV “Earning and Calculating Points”.

Eligible Hours: “Eligible Hours” refers to all the approved hours an HCP worked while on assignment. One (1) Eligible Hour equals10.683761 points. For more information, see What Types of Hours Qualify as Eligible Hours?.

Extension: An “Extension” is when an HCP agrees to extend - by a length of at least four (4) consecutive weeks - their current assignment with HCTN at the same hospital or facility where they worked immediately preceding the Extension. The Extension begins on the start date as specified in the Extension contract.

Rebook: A “Rebook” is when an HCP is confirmed to work a new HCTN assignment with a length of at least four (4) consecutive weeks, but at a different hospital or facility than where the HCP worked immediately preceding the new assignment. The Rebook begins on the start date as specified in the Confirmation Letter of the new assignment.

Successful Completion: A “Successful Completion” means that the HCP successfully completed an HCTN assignment for the entire assignment period as agreed to in the confirmation letter. If the HCP did not complete the entire assignment period, then the assignment will only be considered a “Successful Completion” if the assignment was cancelled or cut short by HCTN or the client facility for a reason other than “for cause.”

V. Earning and Calculating Earned Points

The HCP is eligible to begin accruing Earned Points on January , 2023.

Earned Points will continue to accrue until the HCP is eligible to redeem the monetary value of their Earned Points in accordance with Section VII.  Hours worked will be reset at the beginning of each assignment.  

Calculating the Monetary Value of Earned Points

• One (1) Eligible Hour = 10.683761 Earned Point

• One (1) Earned Point = $.20 Monetary Value

To Calculate Total Earned Points:

Total # of Eligible Hours x 10.683761 = Total Earned Points

To Calculate Monetary Value of Earned Points:

Total Earned Points x $.20 = Monetary Value

Example

If an HCP works an average of 36 hours per week for an assignment length of 13 weeks, total Eligible Hours will equal 468, Earned Points Accumulated will equal 5,000, for a Monetary Value for Redemption equal to $1,000.

VI. What Types of Hours Qualify as Eligible Hours
