There are no charges for the care provided by the college nurse practitioner or the physicians in our office. However, students are responsible for expenses for hospital emergency-room care, X-rays, laboratory tests, specialists fees, hospitalizations and prescriptions filled at outside pharmacies.
Some frequently prescribed medications for colds and minor illnesses are provided without charge through Health Services. Students may be given prescriptions for other medications that can be purchased at local pharmacies.
All information received and maintained by Health Services is confidential. No information will be given to anyone other than Health Services personnel without permission from the patient (except under emergency situations involving danger to oneself or others).
Manhattan College provides a basic student accident insurance plan for all full-time undergraduate students. A sickness insurance plan is available for an additional cost. Inquiries about insurance should be directed to 718-862-7356. Students are strongly urged to maintain health insurance during college. Please observe the enrollment deadline.
