Task force sends out medical survey

The Task Force on Medical Care for the MIT Community has released a web-based survey for all employees. Community members are asked to convey their thoughts on medical care and medical insurance via the voluntary, confidential survey.

Created last fall by then-President Charles M. Vest, the task force was asked to "review and articulate the appropriate goals for MIT's programs to provide health care and health insurance to our undergraduate and graduate students, employees and retirees in terms of access to care, quality of care and the costs of providing care." The task force has been reviewing and assessing how well current arrangements are achieving these goals.

Professor Paul L. Joskow, the Elizabeth and James Killian Professor of Economics and Management, chairs the task force, which includes faculty, students and administrators.

The survey authentication requires a current MIT certificate. Responses will be treated as confidential, and data will be reported in summary format only.
