Several insurance and health programs are available to our employees (click on each to learn more):
Who is covered?
If your appointment is 48% FTE (full-time equivelency) and your position is what we call regular or limited term, we will offer you our group health insurance coverage and our other employee benefit plans.
Medical residents are offered our medical coverage and associated plans listed under Medical Insurance and our Short Term Disability Insurance and Deferred Compensation plans.
Effective date of coverage
Coverage starts the first day of the month following a 30-day waiting period that begins on your first day of employment.
Who isn't covered?
If your appointment is less than half time in a regular or limited term position, or if you are a student employee or a temporary employee, you are not eligible for our benefits (other than deferred compensation) unless afforded medical coverage under provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. We offer our students a separate medical coverage plan.
For individuals not eligible for our medical coverage, the government marketplace may provide opportunities for health insurance coverage. Learn about the Affordable Care Act.
