Professional Liability Coverage

CAMC maintains a self-insurance program for medical professional liability claims (“Claims”) against CAMC and its current and former employees.  Claims are paid from a trust with assets maintained at actuarially-determined levels.  CAMC selects counsel and controls the defense of Claims.  CAMC employees, including medical residents, do not need to maintain their own professional liability insurance for activities within the scope of their CAMC employment, either during or following employment.  CAMC engages counsel and controls the defense of Claims, and employees (whether current or former) must cooperate with CAMC and counsel in the defense of Claims.

Benefits

All Residents are eligible for the same health care, disability, retirement and other benefits as offered to other employees.  These benefits are reviewed annually and any changes are typically made to be effective January 1st of each calendar year.  An annual benefit enrollment is conducted in the fall of each year for Residents to make changes for the following calendar year. 

International graduates are required by the ECFMG to obtain health insurance coverage.  Residents must provide proof of such insurance prior to beginning their program or may elect to enroll in the CAMC benefit plan at orientation.  CAMC may be required to document and monitor proof of coverage. 

New House Staff will have the opportunity to elect coverage’s of their choice during the Human Resources Benefit Orientation upon entering the program. Benefit materials detailing each benefit will be distributed at that time.  Residents are eligible to make changes/additional choices during the annual fall benefit enrollment period.  Should you have questions concerning the benefits, please call Tom Schoolcraft, your Human Resource Associate, at 388-2290.
