How much Meal Money do I receive?
The tiers were determined by calculating the average amount of time spent in-house, by program and PGY Level, per month. Money will be loaded onto your meal cards in a set amount at the beginning of the academic year, and any funds remaining at the end of the year will rollover to the next year, as long as you are appointed to a GME position. You will not be able to exchange remaining meal money for cash on any remaining balance upon graduation and/or termination from UVA. The procedure for purchasing your meals remain the same; you need to present your UVA badge to the Cashier as you go through the check out at the Hospital Cafeterias.
- Tier 1 – $420/year
- Tier 2 – $588/year
- Tier 3 – $708/year
- Tier 4 – $828/year
