GatorGradCare spring/summer enrollment is open

The enrollment deadline for spring/summer GatorGradCare health insurance is Jan. 30, 2018.

Spring/summer GatorGradCare coverage is effective Jan. 1, 2018. The spring/summer enrollment period is only for the following students:

  • New¬†Graduate Assistants, Teaching Assistants and Research Assistants on appointment (.25 FTE or greater) with the University of Florida.
  • Returning GAs, TAs and RAs (.25 FTE or greater) on appointment who did not enroll in annual coverage for the 2017-2018 academic year.

GatorGradCare enrollment is not automatic; GAs must enroll by the Jan. 30 deadline in order to participate in the GatorGradCare plan. No enrollments can be accepted after the enrollment deadline. Students must submit their enrollment by the Jan. 30 deadline, even if their job is not yet in the UF system or they are uncertain of their appointment status for spring.

GatorGradCare participants who terminate their GA appointment and are appointed exclusively as a pre-doc fellow should contact the GA Benefits Office immediately to discuss health insurance options while on fellowship.

Please visit the UFHR website for eligibility criteria, plan information and the link to the enrollment site. If you have questions, please contact the GA Benefits Office at (352) 392-0003 or email
