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 & MCV campuses. APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED & must be scheduled BY PHONE.

Who is eligible to use Student Health? 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, health insurance is strongly recommended to cover medical costs not included in the health fee. If you are uninsured, consider health insurance options through Medicaid or the Marketplace.

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


Are You Covered?

Need to apply for, renew, or change your health insurance

  • Many students are eligible for quality health coverage through Virginia Medicaid based on their income. To see if you qualify, go to www.coverva.org. Enrollment applications for Medicaid are accepted year-round.
  • Open enrollment for the 2021 Health Insurance Marketplace ended December 15, 2020. After December 15, 2020, you cannot get 2021 coverage through the Marketplace unless you qualify for a special enrollment period. 

Please Check Web Portal Messages!

Secure messaging through the Web Portal is the primary means by which Student Health contacts patients. Email contact is not considered secure and private.

  • You will receive a text notification and/or an email when a secure message has been sent to you. 
  • Simply log in to the Web Portal with your eID & password to access your secure messages.
  • Please do not ignore messages as they often contain important health information, such as lab results, updates on vaccine requirements, etc.

Take-Care-Of-Yourself Checklist

It's a good idea to have a small supply of self-care items on hand for minor illnesses. Make a DIY sick kit with these low-cost items available at the Student Health Pharmacy:

  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Bandaids
  • A digital thermometer
  • Pain relievers (acetaminophen/Tylenol, ibuprofen/Advil, naproxen/Aleve)
  • Allergy pills (Benadryl, Zyrtec, Claritin, or Allegra)
  • Cough & cold medications

The Well

The Health Promotion & Well-Being Center (The Well) empowers students to move toward optimal health by finding a balance for all aspects of wellness. Some resources include:

  • One-on-one consultations & presentations on topics such as alcohol & other drugs, smoking cessation, nutrition, disordered eating/body image, stress management, sexual health, & violence prevention.
  • The Resilience Lab. This new resource uses HeartMath biofeedback technology to show students how their bodies react to stress & to teach practical techniques to reduce stress. Both self-guided & 1:1 sessions with a trained staff member are available.
  • Student support groups & special events. Check out the Well's events calendar for details.

Students With Disabilities

Students who have a documented disability & require special accommodations can contact Student Accessibility and Educational Opportunity (SAEO). Health Sciences students should contact the Division for Academic Success (DAS) for assistance.‌
