Yale Health News & Announcements

Check back often and follow us on social media for Yale Health news and announcements

Reminder: Any orthopedic or other specialty care outside of Yale Health Center requires a referral from your PCP. Yale New Haven Health recently sent a solicitation that included some Yale Health members about utilizing their outpatient orthopedic care center in North Haven. Such a center requires an approved referral for Yale Health members.


Yale Health's Ophthalmology & Optometry department would like to remind our patients to follow appropriate eye safety guidelines and use proper eye protection for the solar eclipse, coming Monday April 8, 2024.


On February 26, the FDA issued a warning to immediately stop using and discard certain eye ointment products. Although Yale Health Pharmacy does not stock the listed eye ointments for our members, we feel it is important to share this information should they have been purchased at a local retail pharmacy.

The FDA website has detailed information and images of the recalled items.


We hope this update finds you healthy and enjoying the still early days of 2024.

We are pleased to introduce a new method of communicating care and benefit-related information to our members. In addition to our quarterly newsletter, we will periodically send Member Updates via email containing help for issues we hear patients facing. We’ll use this communication tool to share progress on areas of operational improvement, to bring clarity around complex benefit issues, etc.

And please reach out to us for suggestions on improvement and future topics for us to delve into.

From member feedback comes progress.


Please join us at Yale Health Center throughout March as we acknowledge Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month through a series of educational speaking events. All sessions will be held in the Moreson H. Kaplan Conference Center.


In the spirit of this joyous season, we extend our warmest wishes to you and your loved ones. Whether you're celebrating traditions with family and friends or taking a well-deserved break, we hope you find time to relax and rejuvenate.

We would also like to take a moment to share a few updates with you as 2023 comes to a close:  

  • Revised Masking Guidance 
  • Recess Hours
  • New Member Coverage Booklet
