Health Insurance

Primary health care is available at no additional cost through the Department of Student Health. In addition, the University requires all students to carry health insurance covering accident, injury or illness that may require hospitalization or treatment beyond that provided by Student Health.

In order to ensure that all students have adequate health insurance coverage, the University has instituted a “hard waiver” program. Under this program, the University will bill all new and returning students in the fall for the annual cost of single-student coverage under the University’s endorsed student health plan.  Students may avoid having this cost billed to them if they demonstrate to Student Health that they have other health insurance coverage that meets the University’s specific coverage requirements.

For additional information on the hard waiver program, including what constitutes “comparable coverage,” please visit the Student Health Website

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

Students admitted to the University must complete a medical history form and obtain a physical and tuberculin skin test. Appropriate forms are available online in late spring at www.virginia.edu/studenthealth.

All health requirements must be met prior to registration.

Miyashima

“UVA Law offers a lot of courses concerning business organization and finance, which are strongly related to my current practice. In addition, the number of members in the LL.M. program at UVA Law is quite small in comparison to other law schools. This has helped me proactively involve myself in the UVA community and build close relationships with my classmates.”
