Members may apply for financial support from the Harvard University Health Services Medical Hardship Fund. Members include students, affiliates, and their dependents who are enrolled in both components of the Harvard University Student Health program (the Student Health Fee and the Student Health Insurance Plan). The Fund may be available to use towards eligible expenses, including the allowable cost of diagnostic/specialist visits beyond the six-visit limit for medically necessary care not available at HUHS (e.g., cardiology, oncology, liver, and kidney disease). Members must describe their financial hardship by July 31. The maximum amount available is $5,000 per academic year.
