FAQs about Student Health Services

University Student Health Services is a nationally accredited health care service that offers a wide range of primary care services to VCU students.  Two clinics are conveniently located on the Monroe Park and MCV campuses.  Appointments are required and may be scheduled by phone or online through the Student Health Web PortalIf you have an urgent medical need, do NOT schedule online.  Instead, call Student Health directly for immediate 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?  The health fee covers all visits during the semester.  However, it does not cover prescriptions, referrals, and certain laboratory services.  Click here to see a list of clinic fees.  There is no co-pay for the office visit once the semester health fee is billed.

Do I need health insurance in order to use Student Health?  No.  Services at Student Health are self-pay.  However, students may submit receipts to their health insurance for reimbursement if applicable.  We strongly recommend that all students purchase health insurance to cover the cost of medications, labs, imaging tests, referrals, emergency room visits, etc.  If you are uninsured, consider purchasing VCU’s Aetna Student Health plan or a health insurance policy through the Marketplace.

Student Health is cashless!

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

  • Pain relievers, like ibuprofen (Advil) and acetaminophen (Tylenol)
