Graduate assistants should apply for GatorGradCare health insurance before Sept. 14

Graduate assistants, teaching assistants and research assistants appointed .25 FTE or greater may participate in GatorGradCare health insurance for the 2018-19 academic year. GatorGradCare enrollment is not automatic; all eligible GAs, RAs and TAs, including returning GAs previously on GatorGradCare, must submit a 2018-2019 enrollment to participate in the plan.

The deadline for GatorGradCare coverage for the 2018-19 policy year is Sept. 14, 2018, and enrollments cannot be accepted after the deadline. GAs should submit enrollments as soon as possible to expedite processing.

Beginning in fall 2018, GAs participating in GatorGradCare will pay a nominal monthly premium of $10 for individual coverage per the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the UF Board of Trustees and the Graduate Assistants United (GAU). This premium will be collected through payroll deduction.

GatorGradCare plan information can be found on the UFHR Benefits website. If you have questions about enrollment or eligibility, contact the GA Benefits Office at or call (352) 392-0003.
