All currently registered Stevens undergraduate and graduate students are automatically eligible to use Student Health Services.
Health Fees and Insurance
There is no charge for treatment at Student Health Services. Students are responsible for the cost of laboratory tests and X-rays performed by an off campus agency, medications not available in Student Health Services, and expenses incurred when referred to an off-campus physician or hospital. Stevens requires all enrolled students to have Health Insurance. All students will be automatically charged for the student Health Plan unless a waiver is signed. All of this can be accomplished online.
A medical record is started, maintained and stored for every student who is registered at Stevens. All health and medical information is confidential and is not available to anyone outside of the medical staff without prior written consent of the student involved. There are two exceptions to this rule: certain infectious diseases must be reported to the Department of Public Health under requirements of the law, and documents must be surrendered upon the receipt of a court ordered subpoena.
Referrals are made at Student Health Services by the medical personnel from a list of private local specialists. Students are responsible for charges incurred outside Student Health Services.
The Stevens Student Health Services inventories several medications that are available at no extra charge to the students. The student is responsible for all charges incurred outside Student Health Services when given a prescription for medication that is filled at an outside pharmacy.
Illness and Class Excuses
Student Health Services does not provide students with written class excuses, nor can they provide documentation of a student visit to Student Health Services. Students should speak with their individual faculty members about missing classes.
Emergency Medical Intervention and Protocol
To report medical emergencies, telephone campus police, 201.216.3911. They will respond immediately. Serious illness and injuries will be transported to a local hospital via ambulance.
