Medical Plan Machine Readable File (MRF)

WCGME’s Medical Plan Machine Readable File (MRF) can be accessed using the following link:

The Department of Health and Human Services’ Transparency in Coverage Rule requires health plans to create a member-facing price comparison tool and post publicly available machine-readable files. These files must be updated monthly and include in-network negotiated payment rates and historical out-of-network charges for covered items and services, including prescription drugs. The purpose of this Rule is to help you know the cost of your health care before receiving the care. 

Leave Benefits

  • Paid Time Off (non-cumulative): 20 weekdays (4 weeks) - PTO may be used for absence due to illness or medical, mental health and dental needs of the resident or their dependents.
  • Bereavement: three consecutive days of paid bereavement leave will be granted in the case of a death in the resident’s immediate family.
  • Medical, Parental, Caregiver Leave: 30 weekdays (6 weeks) of paid leave that can be used throughout residency under specific circumstances.

Residents should be aware that whether or not a leave is paid does not determine whether or not a leave will result in the extension of residency training. Please see the Paid Time Off and Leave of Absence Policy in the WCGME Policy Manual for more details.
