UVA Health Plan
You have up to 3 health plan options (depending on your employee type) – Basic, Value, or Choice Health – to meet your and your family's needs. Changes can be made during an Open Enrollment period each October or after a major life change, like a change in marital status, an addition to the family, or a leave of absence.
There are few things more important than taking care of our loved ones. UVA agrees and has made providing dependent care resources, options, and financial support to employees a primary goal.
Whether you need full-time childcare, short-term back-up care for a loved one, or extra support for schoolwork, below you can find resources available to support your caregiving needs offered by UVA or from local community programs.
Depending on your employment status, you have the option to enroll in the Virginia Retirement System (VRS), Optional Retirement Plan (ORP), or Medical Center Retirement Program (MCRP). Through these programs, you also get benefits like life insurance, disability coverage, long-term care benefits, and survivor benefits.
The UVA Health Plan Ombudsman (not to be confused with University Ombuds) makes health plan information available and understandable for UVA employees. Your Ombudsman can answer questions about policies and benefits, help you direct your complaints and concerns, and more.
We encourage you to develop a passion for a healthy lifestyle through enjoyable physical activity and good nutrition. In addition to creating its own programs, Hoo’s Well partners with UVA and the community to provide you all types of tools to improve your physical wellbeing. Many of these programs are free or offered at a reduced rate.
UVA offers several benefits savings accounts. Depending on employee type and health plan enrollment, you may have the option to enroll in a Flexible Spending Account, limited Flexible Spending Account, or Health Savings Account. If you are University Staff, you may have access to a Supplemental Benefit Credit.
Disability insurance helps protect your income when you can’t work - whether from illness, injury, pregnancy, surgery, or another condition. New employees are automatically enrolled in disability coverage during the enrollment process, if available based on employee classification. You will have access to the benefit modules in Workday to assist you in enrolling in all of your benefits after several steps have been completed in your onboarding process, such as completing your I-9 document.
