With the exception of prescription medications, immunizations and tuberculosis screening, all health services offered on campus are covered by University fees. However, care by community providers such as laboratory, x-ray, private physicians/specialists in the community, hopsital emergency department visits or hospital admission are subject to private payment or insurance coverage. It is vital that all students be covered by adequate health insurance and be knowledgeable about accessing that coverage. Expenses associated with unexpected serious illness or injury can have a great impact on college financial plans if health insurance coverage is absent or inadequate.
The University no longer has a plan underwritten by UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company (serviced by First Risk Advisors, Inc.). Information on obtaining private health insurance for your student can be found at ehealthinsurance.com.
