Mount Sinai House Staff Benefits Petition
To Dr. Leitman, Dr. Davis, and Dr. Charney,
Recent changes to House Staff benefits will have a profound negative financial impact on many of us. We are being asked to contribute several thousand dollars over the course of the year for the same plans that previously had zero employee contribution. Making such a big change to the health insurance policy in the middle of residency, without discussion and with short notice, reflects a lack of support on the part of the health system for the house staff, who spend an extraordinary amount of time and energy making it possible for the health system to run. We make at least a three year commitment to work here and do not have the ability to seek employment elsewhere like other employees. We are requesting that in order to support the health and well-being of house staff who make significant sacrifices to the benefit the health system, house staff health plans continue to have zero employee contribution.
