All full-time students receive Yale Health Basic Coverage Services at no charge, which includes primary and urgent care conducted at Yale Health. Students must also have adequate hospitalization insurance, and may choose Yale Health Hospitalization/Specialty Care Coverage for a fee or elect to waive the plan if they have other hospitalization coverage, such as coverage through a spouse or parent. 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.
Mental Health Services
The Mental Health & Counseling Department is located on the third floor of the Yale Health Center. Every Yale student enrolled in a degree program is eligible for counseling at Mental Health & Counseling completely free of charge regardless of whether they have waived Yale Health Hospitalization/Specialty Coverage. Information about appointments and the various services that they offer can be found here.
