Student Health Access Plan

All Full-time undergraduate students attending class on the Barry University main campus (Miami Shores) and all graduate students residing in University provided housing will be billed for a mandatory $60 Student Health Access Plan on a per semester basis, once in the fall and once in the spring. All other students may purchase the plan if they wish to utilize the primary care services at Student Health Services.

This plan provides the following coverage:

  • Unlimited visits for evaluation by a Registered Nurse during SHS hours of operation.
  • Unlimited primary care visits with a Nurse Practitioner for the semester during SHS hours of operation.
  • Select over the counter medications in limited quantities.
  • Select prescriptive medications (high cost medications may have a nominal co-payment).

Please Note:

  • The Student Health Access Plan covers services provided ONLY through Student Health Services (SHS). This plan IS NOT an insurance plan and WILL NOT cover the cost of medical treatment or medications at off-campus providers. It is strongly advised that all students maintain a private comprehensive health insurance plan. Please see the University health insurance requirement at www.barry.edu/healthservices .

The Student Health Access Plan is mandatory and cannot be waived for any reason. This plan will continue to renew for each subsequent semester for Graduate students that remain in University housing. It is the responsibility of the Graduate student to notify SHS if they make the decision not to reside in University housing for the subsequent semester.
