How many credits do you have to take to be eligible for Student Health?
Great question. All students enrolled in classes at the University of Iowa may come to Student Health Service, but you will pay more or less depending on how many credits you are enrolled for. Students who are enrolled for 5 or more credits are automatically required to pay the Student Health fee each semester and get unlimited office visits with physicians, psychiatric care, sports medicine, fitness, nutrition, stress and tobacco cessation services for no charge. The fee does not cover physicals (including women’s annual exams), labs, immunizations, medical supplies, or procedures, so you will pay for those things.
Students enrolled in 0-4 credits can still visit Student Health Service, and they can do one of two things:
1. Pay for each office visit plus the costs of immunizations, lab supplies, tests, etc.
2. Pay the Student Health fee (the 2008-09 rate is $105/semester)* and receive office visits for no charge. Please click on Student Health Fee to go to the form.
The Health Fee works hand in hand with your insurance, so that it covers some things your insurance may not and can save you money in that way as well!
Check out Student Health Service for more information.
If you are a University of Iowa student, you can make an appointment at Student Health Service by calling 335-8394.
