Health, Counseling, and Support

All full time degree-candidate students at YDS and the University at large are enrolled in the Yale Health Plan’s basic coverage program.  The YHP Basic Coverage covers preventative health, mental health, and a broad range of medical services.  Students are then required to purchase hospitalization and prescription drug coverage, unless they are covered under another policy (via a spouse or parent).  Fees are posted to a student’s bill.
