To avoid delay in receiving your W2, keep your address updated with Employee Services (303-860-4200).
All insurance benefits end at midnight (unless completing a shift) on your final day in the training program. You have no "grace period." If you are not sure of your correct ending date, contact your residency/fellowship program director to verify.
