STUDENT HEALTH CARE SERVICES

The Student Health Center (SHC), which is opened to all students and spouses, is located in room 120 of the John L. Clarke Building.  In the summer of 2004 the Health Center will be at its new location next to the Radio & Graphics Services building.  The staff consists of three physicians, two family nurse practitioners, two nurses, a lab technologist, an X-ray technologist and a pharmacist. A health van is maintained for free emergency transportation, which can be arranged through the Student Health Center.  If the Health Center is closed, call Campus Police.

Hours during Fall and Winter Semesters while school is in session:
8 am to 11:45 am & 1 pm to 4:45 pm on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.
8 am to 12:45 pm & 3 pm to 4:45 pm on Tuesday.

Hours during Summer terms while school is in session:
9 am to 3 pm, Monday through Friday.

The last appointment is taken thirty minutes before closing. The SHC is closed on holidays and during breaks between semesters and terms.

If a student requires health care not provided at the SHC, a referral to a qualified physician or specialist will be arranged. Most medical specialties are available either in Rexburg or nearby Idaho Falls (30 minutes away). Madison Memorial Hospital is minutes away from Campus.

Except for prescription cards, SHC does not bill private insurance companies. Students are responsible for submitting the bills to their private companies. In the meantime, their student account can be charged for Health Center services. They will have thirty days to pay the bill before interest is charged. If a student has Brigham Young University-Idaho insurance and no private insurance, the adjustment in their bill is made the day of service

If a student has both Brigham Young University-Idaho insurance and private insurance, the BYU-I insurance is the primary coverage.

Refer to the Financial Policies section of the catalog for information on Brigham Young University-Idaho Student Health Plan Insurance.
