Health Insurance

INFORMATION FOR THE CLASS OF 2016. (Class of 2017 information will be posted in June 2014.)

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

Although you may have existing qualifying coverage or may choose alternative qualifying coverage, information and enrollment instructions for the Aetna Student Health Plan, endorsed by University of Virginia Student Health, is available at the above link  or by calling UVA’s Aetna Student Health Customer Service Department at 1-800-466-3027. If you plan to purchase Aetna health insurance through UVA, your University identification number (UID) is required for the application process. Otherwise, there is no real need for you to obtain the number at this point in time. The UID will be printed on your student ID card after you arrive.

To obtain your unique UID, first obtain your UVA Computing ID and Netbadge password (More Information). Once you have these, log into https://whois.virginia.edu/uid; authenticate with your UVA Student System ID Number (SIS Number) from the email you received from Jennifer Hulvey in Financial Aid, using your last name, your date of birth (month/day/year) and your email address (try your primary email address from your application first; if that doesn’t work, try your new UVA email address, which you should have set up per recent email instructions); submit the request, and your UID will be displayed. For assistance, please contact LawITC@virginia.edu.

The plan year for new participants begins mid-August. 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 late August. Mail the completed form to:

Department of Student Health
