All plans are contributory for all levels of coverage and offer vision and pharmacy benefits. Dental coverage is available with benefits paid for a variety of services. The employee contributes toward the cost of the plan.

Pay Due to Absences or Illnesses
Residents are eligible for full salary continuation for up to 29 days of disability. Sick leave is not accrued for residents. If you are sick or injured and cannot work for more than 29 calendar days, you must apply for short term disability.

Short and Long Term Disability Insurance
Residents receive 100% of their salary for short term disability beginning on the 30th day of disability through the 90th day, and 60% thereafter. Beyond 180 days, you may be eligible for long term disability which pays 60% of your salary. Both plans are fully paid for by UMMS.
