Student Health Access Plan

All students living in campus 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 use the primary care services in the SHC.

This plan provides the following coverage:

  • Unlimited primary care visits with a Nurse Practitioner for the semester
  • Over the counter medications
  • Most prescriptive medications (medications that are in excess of $50 will have a nominal copayment for students with primary insurance other than the Barry Sponsored UHC plan)
  • Immunizations a deeply reduced price (immunizations that are in excess of $50 will have a nominal copayment for students with primary insurance other than the Barry Sponsored UHC plan)

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.
  • This plan covers most services provided at SHS except; immunization (minimal co-pay applies), and most medications.
  • Laboratory tests that must be sent to an off-site lab and will be billed to the patient’s primary insurance. Any unpaid balance owed to the laboratory is the patient’s responsibility.
  • Although Student Health Services provides treatment for most common illness, it is not a comprehensive medical center and cannot provide diagnostic testing or treatment for major illness. Therefore, it is strongly advised that you maintain a comprehensive full-service ACA compliant insurance plan, to provide treatment and medications that fall out of the scope of services provided through SHS.
  • This plan will automatically renew for subsequent semesters unless a non-renewal form is completed at SHS prior to the start of the enrolling semester (restrictions apply to non-renewal for students residing in University provided housing.)
