Each resident attends a comprehensive administrative orientation session at the beginning of the training program. A portion of the session is devoted to reviewing all elements of the benefits package and answering any questions regarding them. Visit Emory's Human Resources website for an additional summary of the benefits package.

Emory University offers each eligible resident, at no cost, the following group benefit plans:

  • Single Medical Coverage

  • Life Insurance

  • Long Term Disability Insurance

  • Accidental Death Insurance

In addition to the employer-provide benefits, eligible residents may enroll in optional benefits including family medical, dental, vision, flexible spending accounts, and retirement plans. You contribute toward the cost of the optional benefits that you elect.

Health Care

For the 2019-2020 plan year, Medical House Staff members have one medical plan option, the POS Plan. The POS Plan is a conventional medical plan where members pay co-pays for some services (co-pays are fixed fee amounts that you pay at the time you receive services). For more details, read the 2019-2020 Benefits Guide.

Dental Plan

For the 2019-2020 plan year, Medical House Staff can select the Aetna Traditional Dental (PPO) Plan. This plan is a traditional dental plan that allows you to see any dental provider. Some services require you to pay the deductible and applicable co-insurance. For more details, view the full Summary Plan Description (SPD).

Flexible Spending Accounts

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is funded with money you contribute on a pre-tax basis. You can use FSA funds to pay for qualified out-of-pocket health care costs for you and eligible dependents or dependent day care charges. According to IRS regulations, you must re-enroll each year during annual enrollment if you want to participate in FSA.

Long-Term Disability Coverage

Emory offers a Long Term Disability (LTD) benefit through UNUM to provide an income in the event you become disabled due to an injury or illness that is not work-related. With LTD coverage provided by Emory, you can receive a benefit equal to 60% of your base salary in the event you are unable to work due to a non-work-related injury or illness. There is a 90-day elimination period and coverage has a monthly maximum benefit of $5,000. It is automatically provided on your date of hire in a benefits-eligible status.

Accidental Death and Dismemberment

Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance provides coverage for non-job related accidental dismemberment or accidental death. Emory provides AD&D insurance for all eligible Medical House Staff in the amount of $50,000. This insurance pays a benefit in the event of a loss of life, loss of the use of more than one member, or the loss of sight in both eyes.


The Office of Graduate Medical Education (OGME) pays a monthly fee for each resident to receive parking privileges at Emory University facilities. Although OGME pays the monthly parking fee, each resident must pay the initial cost of obtaining a parking/security card at Grady Memorial Hospital. Parking at the VA Medical Center is free but requires the resident to obtain a parking permit from the chief of service. Emory University Hospital Midtown (EUHM) uses the Emory Card photo ID card to access the parking lots. The Emory Card should be presented to the security office at EUHM to receive parking privileges.

Questions or Concerns

Residents with questions about any aspect of the Group Benefit Plans should call the Benefits Office of the Human Resources Division at 404.727.7613. The main office of the Human Resources Division is located at 1599 Clifton Road, NE.
