Benefits Guide and Stipend Information For Residents and Fellows


Residents and fellows are provided with $5,000 of life insurance with your health insurance plan through the Group Insurance Commission.  In addition, they can elect to purchase additional coverage.  The cost is based on age, salary, and the amount of life insurance elected.  Coverage is effective on the first of the month following 60 days of employment when enrolling as a new hire.  If enrollment is delayed to a later date, evidence of good health must be provided.  Coverage may also be increased without medical review based on change in family status (marriage, birth or adoption of a child, divorce or death of a spouse).
