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 online 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 purchase health insurance to cover medical costs not included in the health fee.  If you are uninsured, consider purchasing a health insurance policy through the Marketplace.

Zika Virus

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued travel alerts for countries where Zika virus is prevalent.  Florida is the first state in the continental US where local transmission of Zika from mosquitoes is being reported.  Travelers can use the CDC “Know Your Zika Risk” tool for tailored risk and prevention information.

  • The majority of people who are infected with the Zika virus do not become ill.  If symptoms develop, they are usually mild and include fever, rash, painful joints, and/or conjunctivitis.  
  • Zika infection has been linked to a birth defect called microcephaly.  The CDC is advising pregnant women to avoid travel to areas where Zika virus is occurring.  
  • The Zika virus is primarily spread by infected mosquito bites to people. Avoiding mosquito bites is the best form of prevention for those traveling to a Zika risk area.  Travelers returning from an area with Zika risk should avoid mosquito bites for 3 weeks.
  • Zika infection can also occur through sexual transmission.  Condoms can reduce the chance of getting Zika from sex.  Pregnant women with sexual partners who live in or have traveled to areas with Zika should abstain from sex or use condoms during sex every time.

Student Health is cashless!

Only major credit cards, debit cards, and Rambucks are accepted as payment methods.


Take-Care-Of-Yourself Checklist

It's a good idea to have a few self-care items in your dorm room for minor illnesses. Consider keeping a small supply of 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)
  • Benadryl for allergic reactions
  • 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, rape, sexual assault and domestic violence, stress management, and sexual health.
  • 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.
