A student may “cease to qualify” for the graduate student health insurance subsidy for any number of reasons, including:
- The student withdraws from school during the course of the academic year;
- The student is not employed in the capacity that was anticipated at the start of the academic year (i.e., the student was expected to earn $5,000 as a TA during the spring semester, but in actuality was not employed in that capacity); or
- Fellowship funds are not awarded because the student ceases to qualify for that fellowship.
If a student “ceases to qualify” after s/he has enrolled in the Aetna Student Health plan, there will be no refund of the payment to the University of Virginia. The University and Aetna Student Health will allow the student's health insurance coverage to continue until it expires.
