Cost for services?

There is no charge to see a medical provider. However, a fee will be charged for  physical exams (athletics, employment, internship), TB testing (PPD), and administration of allergy and other injections. Please see Primary Care Services above. We accept cash, check, debit, or credit card. 

All students are responsible for off-site lab fees, x-rays, and prescribed medications. Individual out-of-pocket costs for these services will be dependent on the student's insurance carrier. 

Health Insurance Coverage?

All registered undergraduate and graduate students attending Nazareth University are expected to carry health insurance. Students will need to show proof of insurance coverage prior to their arrival on campus by entering their insurance information into the Nazareth Student Health Portal. This must be updated each Fall semester with current insurance information.

While most students are covered under a family plan, students who do not have access to coverage may qualify for free or low-cost health insurance coverage through New York State.  Enrollment is open year-round, and most plans cover preventive care, such as routine medical visits and screenings, immunizations, mental health services, prescriptions, x-rays, specialist visits, urgent care, and hospital care. For more information about New York State health plans, visit New York State of Health and Student Health Plans & Other Options

International Students

Nazareth University and the U.S. The Department of State requires all F-1 international students to obtain health insurance recognized in the United States for the duration of their stay. Students will need to show proof of insurance coverage prior to their arrival on campus by entering their insurance information into the Nazareth Student Health Portal. This must be updated each Fall semester with current insurance information.

International students will be advised to research medical coverage before residing in the United States to make sure their policy covers accidents, emergencies, health complaints, prescription drugs, and doctors’ visits.The college is not responsible for any medical expenses incurred by the student. Guidelines for selecting a policy can be found on the webpage for the Center for International Education in the FAQ section.


A student’s medical record at Health and Counseling Services is confidential. Information in the medical record is only released with the student’s request and written permission, or by judicial subpoena.The one exception to this is in a life-threatening situation when it may be necessary to release information on a need-to-know basis.

New York State Law requires that “medical records shall be retained in their original or legally reproduced form for a period of at least six years from the date of discharge” (10 N.Y. Comp Codes R. & Regs. 405.10). Health Counseling Services retains student records for 6 years after a student leaves the college, after that period of time the records are destroyed.

Information cannot and will not be released to anyone without prior written consent from the student.

According to federal privacy laws, parents do not have the right to know if or why their son/daughter has visited Health Services. If a student is 18 years old or older and has given us written permission to discuss care with parents/legal guardians, we will talk to them regarding only the issue(s) mentioned in a signed Authorization to Disclose Medication Information form. Long-term blanket Release of Information forms are not accepted. Written permission needs to be given each time a student wants Health and Counseling Services to discuss care with his/her parents or legal guardians.

Veterans benefits?

The usual fees for PPD skin test or the MMR vaccine is waived.

Medical excuse letters?

Nazareth's Health and Counseling Services does not issue notes, medical excuses, or visit verification, unless an illness/condition is expected to last longer than 3 days.

Responsibility for class attendance and completion of assignments rests primarily with students, who assume responsibility by communicating directly with faculty via email or phone.
