Mount Sinai provides health coverage for house officers through the Mount Sinai-Oxford Health Plan. There is also a choice of health coverage through several other HMOs. If you participate in the Mount Sinai Health Plan, there are professional discounts that apply to deductibles, co-insurance, and standard (non-maternity) private room charges when services are rendered at The Mount Sinai Hospital. Routine nursery and obstetric care are provided at no cost to the house officer. There is cost sharing if family coverage is desired. More detailed information regarding all plans is available at the Benefits Office.
