University of Florida graduate students on appointment as a Graduate Assistant, Teaching Assistant, or Research Assistant may participate in the GatorGradCare health insurance plan. The GatorGradCare plan includes two network tiers for medical providers. While it is not necessary to stay within only one network tier, participants should understand how using services in Tiers 1 and Tiers 2 affect out-of-pocket costs.
Free Online Therapy from Talkspace
Free for Graduate Assistants with GatorGradCare benefits
Not feeling like yourself? You can use a service called Talkspace to send text, video and audio messages or schedule live video sessions with a dedicated therapist via phone, tablet or computer. Available at no cost, Talkspace online therapy is available to graduate assistants, their spouses and dependents 18 years or older enrolled in GatorGradCare. As of April 9, 2020 this benefit is also available to any covered GatorCare member.
