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. Both telehealth and in-person appointments are available.

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.

Keep On Being Well (You@VCU)

Keep On Being Well is a new interactive resource aimed at improving the success and well-being of students.  The You@VCU platform uses responsive technology to help students find VCU resources and wellness content that matters to them most.  Create a personal profile, take quizzes to identify specific needs and interests, set goals, and interact with tools that are customized for you.


TimelyCare

TimelyCare is a new emotional and mental health resource available to students whenever and wherever they need it.  TimelyCare offers free 24/7 access to virtual care, self-care, and well-being tools.  Virtual services are provided by licensed clinicians and include emergency crisis counseling, scheduled therapy sessions, and health coaching.  Not sure if virtual care is for you?  Check out their self-help videos and resources for stress reduction and more.

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

Free Condoms
  • Use the RecWell's Condom Concierge to order free condoms, dental dams, and more.  Order pick-up is at Cary Street Gym.
  • Student Health also offers free condoms to students during in-person appointments.
