Health Insurance: A health insurance plan is provided at no cost to the fellow. Fellows may add coverage for a spouse and/or minor dependents through a cost-sharing program. Information regarding the plans is provided in the New Resident Orientation materials. The premium for the least expensive plan is provided by the Eastern Virginia Medical School. If the fellow chooses an alternative plan, the difference between the least costly plan and the plan chosen will be the responsibility of the fellow, and the cost will be automatically deducted from the monthly stipend check. The major plans provide hospital, medical and major medical benefits to the trainee. Coverage begins on the first day of the contract month and ceases on the last day of the contract period. An optional dental plan is available. The entire premium for the dental plan is the responsibility of the trainee.
