Primary Care Outpatient Services

Student Health Services will provide unlimited outpatient care and treatment usually performed in a primary care physician’s office, at no charge. Student Health Services physicians are seen by appointment only. If the problem is urgent and a physician is not present, the nursing staff is available during office hours to assess your need.

A covered child is not eligible to utilize Student Health Services and instead should seek primary care outpatient services from Forest Park Pediatrics, LC.

You will be charged $20 for any appointment missed without notice.

There is no charge for a student, spouse or domestic partner to see a medical caregiver at Student Health Services. If a student, spouse or domestic partner needs to see a provider or obtain services outside of Student Health Services, you will need a referral from Student Health Services (read Student Health Services Referral requirement below).

Most medical care will be provided at no cost, except for applicable deductibles or co-pays, if:

  • care is provided by Student Health Services or
  • care is provided by a member of the Student Health Services network of participating physicians and the care is pre-approved by Student Health Services.

Student Health Services will only cover the costs of services obtained outside of Student Health Services if those services have been approved by and/or coordinated through Student Health Services.  This includes any laboratory testing, consultations, or procedures.

Student Health Services provides limited benefits while away from campus. Upon returning to the campus, the student must return to Student Health Services for necessary follow-up care and referrals.

Dependent children are not eligible to use Student Health Services.

The Student Health Service provides a variety of services for full-time students registered in the medical and allied professional schools of the medical campus. It offers easy access to medical and psychiatric care so that physical and emotional problems will interfere as little as possible with university life. All outpatient Student Health Service benefits take effect on the date of registration, if all health requirements are met and continue so long as you maintain full-time student status, and cease the date you withdraw, graduate or complete a course of study by submitting thesis paperwork to the appropriate office.

Identification cards

At the time of orientation, all new students will be given a medical benefit identification card. This card should be shown to all caregivers outside of our offices to ensure proper billing.

The group number is MED8030. If you need a replacement card, you may pick one up at Student Health Services.
