Once a student is attending at least three credit hours of classes, they may take advantage of the services provided by the Student Health Center. The Student Health Center is designed to meet our students’ basic health care needs. Our services include acute care, physicals for employment or athletics, immunizations, women’s health, and vaccinations. The nurse practitioners may prescribe medications as needed.
Currently our fee for an office visit is $10 to be paid on the date of service. If necessary, additional fees for lab work or other diagnostic tests may be incurred. We have negotiated with a well known laboratory to obtain low prices for our students. We charge the same for insured and uninsured students. However, we do not file insurance.
Health promotion and wellness education is a big part of our outreach to students. We speak at length to all our students regarding maintaining healthy lifestyles while in college. Health education brochures and information are provided throughout the academic year.
Our nurse practitioners work with the UAH Counseling Center to meet all our student’s needs, addressing issues surrounding the distressed student and prevention. All information is kept confidential.
If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free at anytime to contact us online at SHC@uah.edu or directly at 256-824-6775.
