Student Health FAQs

University Student Health Services is a nationally accredited health care provider that offers primary care services to VCU students.  Two clinics are located on the Monroe Park and MCV campuses.  Appointments are required and may be scheduled by phone or through the Student Health Web Portal.  If you have an urgent medical need, call Student Health directly for assistance.

Who is eligible to use Student Health?  All VCU students who have paid the semester health fee may be seen at Student Health.  No health fee is required to use the Student Health Pharmacy or Immunization Services.

What does the health fee cover?  There are no co-pays for office visits once the health fee is billed each semester.  The health fee does NOT cover prescriptions, referrals, some laboratory services, imaging tests, emergency room visits, etc.  

What about health insurance?  Student Health does not accept health insurance, so any additional clinic fees are self-pay. However, we strongly recommend that all students obtain health insurance to cover medical costs not included in the health fee.  If you are uninsured, check to see if you are eligible for Medicaid or consider purchasing a health insurance policy through the Marketplace.

What payment forms are accepted at Student Health?  Student Health is cashless.  Only major credit cards, debit cards, Rambucks, Apple Pay, and Samsung Pay are accepted as payment methods.


Take-Care-Of-Yourself Checklist

It's a good idea to have a small supply of self-care items in your dorm room for minor illnesses. Make yourself a DIY sick kit with the following items (which are available at low prices through the Student Health Pharmacy):

  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Bandaids
  • A digital thermometer
  • Pain relievers, like ibuprofen (Advil) and acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • An antihistamine pill for allergic reactions (Benadryl, Zyrtec, Claritin, or Allegra)
  • Cough and cold medications

The Well

The Wellness Resource Center empowers all students to move toward optimal health by finding a balance for all aspects of wellness.  Stop by and check out the many resources offered at the Well.  Examples include:

  • One-on-one consultations and presentations on topics such as alcohol and other drugs, smoking cessation, nutrition, disordered eating/body image, stress management, sexual health, and violence prevention.
  • A wide array of student support groups and special events.  Check out the events calendar at the bottom of the Well's homepage.
  • Volunteer opportunities and ways to get involved around campus.

Students With Disabilities

VCU students who have a documented disability and require special accommodations can contact Student Accessibility and Educational Opportunity. Health Science students should contact the Division for Academic Success for assistance.‌
