Louisiana’s Ochsner Health, the largest hospital system in the state, is imposing a fee on unvaccinated spouses of employees, requiring them to pay an health insurance fee of $100 per pay period if they remain unvaccinated.
Like many healthcare systems,Ochsner Health announced a vaccine mandate in August, requiring workers to get the jab or face termination. Employees are expected to be fully vaccinated by October 29. Those who do not will be suspended and face losing their job if they refuse. Exceptions are limited to those with medical issues or religious reasons.
