Post Doctoral Trainees are automatically enrolled in the health insurance plan unless a waiver form is submitted by September 12th. Dependents of Postdocs can also be enrolled for the same coverage.
Eligible dependents of enrolled Post Doctoral Trainees may participate in the plan on a voluntary basis but must be enrolled within 30 days of the Post Doc start date. Please contact Faith Bishop at email@example.com or 615-343-7309 for further details.
