Student Health Services at the Health Sciences Student Center!

We are excited to announce that our opening date for the new Student Health Services (SHS) at the Health Sciences Student Center IS NOW OPEN!!!

Our staff are excited to be able to get to know students on the Health Science Campus better and be available for medical services that are convenient to class, study space, and recreation opportunities. The new Health Sciences Student Center is a beautiful addition to the university.

Hours of operation for summer:

Monday/Wednesday 1pm-5pm
Tuesday/Thursday/Friday 8am-noon

Location:

2nd floor, Health Sciences Student Center

Things to know:

  • SHS will have various services to offer at the Health Science location, such as Primary Care (illnesses, injuries, physicals, annual wellness exams, wound care, gynecological visits, birth control services, medication refills) and Nursing Services (immunizations, titers, drug screens, TB skin tests, asymptomatic STI screenings, dressing changes, suture removals).
  • Appointments can easily be made by calling 252-328-6841 or in person. We hope to have online scheduling available soon.
  • Students are encouraged to make an appointment at our main campus clinic for: radiology, colposcopy, allergy injections, sexual assault exams, nutrition appointments, travel immunizations. (Due to space issues, we are unable to offer these services at our Health sciences location). Unsure if we can accommodate your need at the Health Sciences location? Just ask when you call to schedule your appointment.
  • Students who receive prescriptions at their visit can have them sent electronically to their pharmacy of choice. Of course, prescriptions can be sent to our main campus pharmacy if you would like your medications filled by SHS.
  • Students can receive care at either SHS location, regardless of academic program or area of study. SHS does not provide service for alumni, dependents, staff or faculty.
  • Any charges that are due will be charged to the University Cashier, as no money and credit cards will be accepted at the Health Sciences location. We will continue to accept Blue Cross Blue Shield, Student Blue (the Student Health Insurance Plan) and MedCost plans as we do at our main campus location.
  • All of our appointment and eligibility policies at main campus Student Health will apply to our location at Health Sciences. These policies include but are not limited to: ECU 1Card required for service, a fee for missed appointments, students arriving 10 minutes or more late will be asked to reschedule, etc. For a list of FAQs about our services, visit http://www.ecu.edu/cs-studentaffairs/studenthealth/about_us/questions.cfm

SHS and CCSD Services in the Summer

banner with the word summer

Now that summer has come, many students are not taking classes but they would still like to utilize Student Health Service (SHS) or the Counseling Center (CCSD). Not in summer school? You may be eligible to still receive care at SHS & CCSD.

Did you just graduate? Congratulations! Due to anti-trust laws, SHS cannot continue to provide your healthcare, but we can 1) help you transfer your records to the office of your choice, 2) provide you with a list of local offices if you need help establishing care outside, or 3) we do have a 2 week grace period following graduation if you need to come in for a follow up of an existing problem (i.e. to get a medication refilled, or to finish up treatment for a particular problem or concern).

If you did not graduate, but are just not taking classes in summer school, you may still be eligible for care at SHS and/or CCSD. In order to qualify for services at SHS/CCSD in the summer when you are not taking classes,

          • you must be registered for fall classes

If you meet those criteria, you can be seen at SHS for a special summer fee; services at CCSD are free. The summer fee for SHS is necessary because you are not taking classes for the summer or paying any tuition, so you are not paying the usual health fee.

Per visit fee $30.00
OR
Need multiple visits? Pay $60.00 for unlimited visits per summer session.

May Intersession Hours

Now that spring semester is coming to a close, Student Health Service has a change in operating hours for the May Intersession period, May 9-13.

Our office is closed Monday, May 9, for a staff development event. We will also be closed Thursday, May 12, for a divisional event.

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday (May 10, 11, and 13) Student Health is open for general business (dropping off forms, requesting medical records, general information) from 7:30am-12noon & 1pm-5pm. Patient care hours (for appointments, dressing changes, pharmacy, etc) are 1:30pm-4pm daily on Tuesday and Wednesday, and 7:30am-11:30am on Friday. Please also note: SHS is CLOSED from 12pm-1pm for the lunch hour daily.

There are no weekend hours for intersession or for summer semesters.

A visit fee is required during this period to be seen as a patient at SHS. The fee is $30 per visit, in addition to any other charges you may incur during your appointment (lab, pharmacy, xray, etc). The reason there is a visit fee is because during intersession, no student fees are supporting campus services. We are open as a courtesy and convenience to students even when there are no classes, but your tuition and fees do not cover this period of service.

If you need care when SHS is not open, do not forget about our free 24 hour nurse line. Just call our main number below and wait on the line. This service is available to all ECU students.

For more information about our intersession hours or the visit fee for service, call us at (252) 328-6841.

blue-cross-blue-shield-logoGreat news!!!  ECU Student Health Services is now an in-network provider for BlueCross BlueShield health insurance plans!

Students with BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS) health insurance plans now can utilize Student Health Services (SHS) just as they do any other participating provider.  SHS will file any charges to the insurance plan and coverage will be determined by the plan benefits and policy terms.  Deductibles, co-insurance, and any out of pocket amounts are determined by the individual policy; we encourage students and parents to become familiar with what their BCBS plan covers as well as any exclusions or limitations that may be stipulated.

Students desiring to file their BCBS insurance MUST bring a copy of their current insurance information and present it upon check in when they come for visits at SHS.  If the policy holder is a parent, the student must also provide that parent’s name, date of birth, and address.

There is no co-pay at SHS because the student fees paid with tuition cover the office visit charge.  Distance education students do not pay student fees, so they will be subject to a $30 SHS access fee for each visit.

Any charges that are not covered by a student’s BCBS plan will be sent to the Cashier’s Office and applied to the student’s main tuition bill.  Those charges should be paid timely to avoid issues with registration, obtaining grades, or requesting transcripts.

For more information, call us at (252) 328-6841 or e-mail gotquestions@ecu.edu.
