TheYale Health Centeris located just a few blocks from the Law School and provides a full slate of health care services, including primary care, specialty services, an inpatient care facility, and 24-hour walk-in urgent care.

All full-time students receive Yale Health Basic Coverage Services at no charge, which includes primary and urgent care conducted at Yale Health.

A prescription drug plan is also available for an additional fee.

Students may also enroll a spouse or same-sex partner and dependent children in health coverage through Yale Health.

Further details about health insurance coverage are available in the Law School Bulletin and through the Yale Health website. The Yale Health 2013-2014 Student Handbook is available here.
