Health Insurance for Law Students

INFORMATION FOR THE CLASS OF 2018 (Class of 2019 information will be posted in June/July 2016.)

All University of Virginia students are required to maintain health insurance throughout their enrollment.

All students will be billed for health insurance, which is administered by Aetna Student Health, on Sept. 25, 2015, with payment due by Oct. 31, 2015. The cost of this insurance is $2,613 for the coverage year of Aug.15. 2015 to Aug. 14, 2016.

You may opt out of the Aetna Student Health insurance if you have other insurance that meets the University’s coverage requirements. You must complete the waiver application between July 6, 2015, and Sept. 15, 2015.  The waiver application can be found under the tab “Domestic Students” at www.uvastudentinsurance.com. You will need your University Identification Number to complete the waiver process, and you can find that number at “University ID Lookup” at the following site: www.virginia.edu/sis. You may also chose to enroll in the Aetna Student Health insurance plan at this site, and you are encouraged to do so before Aug. 15, 2015, so that you will have coverage at the earliest possible date. If you have questions about health insurance, please contact Aetna Student Health customer service at 1-800-466-3027.

For questions regarding comparable coverage or the online waiver process, please contact Student Health at hardwaiver@virginia.edu or (434) 243-2702.

If you plan to purchase Aetna health insurance through UVA, your University identification number (UID) is also required for the application process.

The plan year for new participants begins on Aug. 15, 2015. Please be advised, however, that students in the Schools of Law, Medicine, and Business do not qualify for the Graduate Student Health Insurance subsidy that you will see mentioned on the referenced websites.

Incoming students must submit UVA's Pre-Entrance Health Record by Aug. 31. Mail the completed form to:
