UVA Employee Same Day Clinic

The Employee Same Day Clinic is available to University employees who have minor, acute illness such as influenza, dermatitis, GI upset, UTI, conjunctivitis, etc. The service, which is not intended to be a substitute for one’s Primary Care Provider, is available by appointment at 434.924.2013. There is no charge or co-pay for this service. The Clinic is located in Employee Health, first floor, 1222 JPA.

Pre-tax Parking

Salaried employees who use payroll deduction to purchase parking permits from University Parking and Transportation services may do so on a pre-tax basis. The program is similar to the pre-tax deduction for health care premiums in that taxable pay is reduced and participants benefit by an increase in take-home or net pay.

Employees who participate in the pre-tax parking benefit will reduce the amount of pay subject to federal income, state income and FICA tax withholdings annually. An employee’s gross pay will not change but his or her net pay will increase due to the lesser amount of pay subject to tax withholding.

Savings Bonds and Treasury Securities

Any salaried Medical Center employee, full-time or part-time, may establish a payroll deduction to purchase U.S. Treasury Securities, including Savings Bonds, through TreasuryDirect. More information can be found at TreasuryDirect
