What benefits do UC San Diego Health employees receive?

Subsidy Details

  • The subsidy will cover up to 50% of the course or workshop with a fiscal year cap of $210.

  • For example, an employee takes a mindfulness course which costs $200; $100 would be covered by the subsidy.  The participant has $110 left for the year ($210 - $100 = $110).  If they choose to do another course that year they may apply the remainder of the subsidy, covering up to 50% of a course.
