Yale Health Insurance

If you are registered as a Yale degree-candidate student, enrolled half-time or more, and paying at least half tuition:

  • You receive primary care services at no charge at the Yale Health Center through Yale Health Basic.
  • You are automatically enrolled in and charged premiums for Yale Health Hospitalization/Specialty Care.
  • You are required by the University to have adequate health insurance (regardless of whether you will be studying on campus).

You may decline enrollment in Yale Health Hospitalization/Specialty Care coverage by submitting an online waiver request. A waiver must be submitted annually and received by:

  • September 15 for the full year or fall term
  • January 31 for the spring term

Waivers will be processed and credits will appear accordingly on your student account within 5 business days of your waiver’s submission.
