Health Award

We provide Yale Health Basic Coverage at no cost to all students (Master's and PhD) who are enrolled at least half-time in degree-seeking programs. You do not need to apply for or waive this coverage. 

In addition to the Basic Coverage, all PhD students registered at least half-time receive a Health Fellowship Award that covers the cost of Yale Health Hospitalization/Specialty Care Coverage. PhD students are automatically enrolled in this additional, comprehensive coverage. If you decide to waive Hospitalization/Specialty Care Coverage, you are not eligible to receive the Health Fellowship Award. 

The Health Fellowship Award also covers the legal spouse and/or the child(ren) of PhD students enrolled through Yale Health. Dependents must be added to your Hospitalization/Specialty Coverage at Yale Health each term. 

You can review comprehensive information about your coverage through Yale Health on their overview of Student Coverage.
