The UVM Health Fee covers comprehensive, high-quality physical and mental health care, programming, and services while enrolled at the University of Vermont. 

It includes coverage for office visits for illness or injury, counseling and mental health services, and a variety of opportunities for health education and radical self-care at no additional cost to you. 

Full-time students pay the health fee as part of UVM's Comprehensive Fee. If you are a part-time student, your credit load determines whether you are required to pay the health fee or can pay it optionally. The Student Financial Services website includes this information for undergraduate, Graduate College, and Larner College of Medicine students.
