All students are required by the University to have health insurance, either under a parent's plan or purchased independently. The requirement assures that resources are available to cover inpatient or specialty care or expenses related to accidents or injuries. Students may enroll either in the UVA-endorsed Student Health Insurance Plan through the Chickering Group or in a substitute plan that the student feels is comparable.

The official health plan for UVA students. New students will receive detailed information on the various options under this plan in July from the Law School. Enrollment deadline is Oct. 1. Study the information you receive carefully to pick the best option for you and your family. University Student Health will send general requirements for health insurance and immunizations.
If you or your spouse were employed before coming to the Law School, COBRA health insurance may be an option for temporary coverage.
