We are here at 726 Broadway and 6 Metro Tech to help you feel your best so you can do your best. We provide medical counseling, pharmacy, disability, and health promotion services to all matriculated students. [Speaker 2]
The NYU student body is diverse which we always take into consideration to address your specific health care needs. [Speaker 3]
Primary care is usually your first stop for routine health care or non-emergencies like allergies and colds. Sometimes, your appointment may not be right away. [Speaker 1]
Urgent care is for when do need to be seen by a doctor right away. You might go to urgent care for fevers, vomiting, broken bones, and other non life-threatening conditions. No appointment is needed, you can just drop-in. [Speaker 4]
Hospital emergency rooms, or ERs, are for serious life-threatening medical conditions. [Speaker 2]
There is no charge for the visit to see the provider in primary care or women’s health. However, there is a small drop-in charge for any visits to urgent care. Keep in mind that there may be additional costs for any procedures or tests ordered during your visit. These costs depend on your insurance policy’s coverage. [Speaker 5]
Our counselors are here to help navigate through the challenges of your daily life. [Speaker 4]
They offer confidential professional support to help you address your feelings thoughts, or behaviors. [Speaker 3]
Some common reasons students seek care include stress, loneliness, relationship difficulties, adjustment difficulties, trauma, etcetera. No reason is too big or too small. [Speaker 4]
Health insurance is an investment in your well being. Not having health insurance in the United States can potentially cause high financial risks. That’s why NYU requires that every student in a degree program have a health insurance plan. This could be anything from NYU’s sponsored health insurance plan to another health insurance coverage. Regardless of whichever health insurance plan you have, you can always come to the Student Health Center. [Speaker 2]
Coverage for NYU sponsored insurance plans starts a few weeks before the semester begins unless you are enrolled in a special early arrival NYU program. Insurance ID cards are available online on the Consolidated Health Plans website. In addition, ID cards will be mailed out a month into the semester.
