The staff is available by appointment. Students with any health problems should telephone 845-257-3400 and a triage nurse will help them secure appropriate care in a confidential manner. Walk-ins are accommodated in a similar fashion. Those calling early in the day are most likely to have access to early appointments.
During regular hours, if there is greater demand for services at the Center than can be met, students needing immediate care will be referred to a physician off-campus or to their own personal physician. This off-campus referral would usually not apply to first-semester students who are new to the area.
Student Health Fee:
While it is very important for all students to have health insurance coverage, you do not need health insurance coverage to be seen at the Health Service, so there is no direct charge for appointments. Services offered are covered by a combination of state-appropriated funds and a mandatory student health fee. There are charges incurred for laboratory tests submitted to an outside laboratory or prescriptions written by a provider that are filled at a pharmacy.
