Student Health Center

Welcome to the Student Health Center

Keeping life balanced is not easy in the busy world of college. Pacific University's Student Health Center Staff is a dedicated team of professionals who provide confidential, quality medical services and wellness promotion to help you stay healthy and succeed in your academic and personal life.

ALL Students are Eligible

The Student Health Center provides services to ALL students enrolled in one or more credits regardless of what insurance coverage you have chosen. University staff and family members are not eligible for services. Services are bridged during summer and winter breaks for returning students.

Costs

The SHC is here to provide you with convenient, low cost healthcare services during weekday hours.  Your insurance is for those times when the SHC is closed or when a specialist is needed.  For those who have chosen the University student insurance plan, the yearly deductible is waived and coverage is 100% for charges at the SHC.  In addition the University bills the student insurance plan electronically for reimbursement to the student.  If you have other insurance the SHC will provide you with a statement to submit for reimbursement. 

There are no office visit fees at the Student Health Center. The SHC strives to save you money by keeping costs as low as possible.  Visit the Student Health Center Fee page for more information on prices.

ZIKA Virus

On January 15, 2016, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a travel alert to highlight countries where Zika virus is prevalent. The Zika virus is spread primarily by mosquito bites but it has also been reported that it has spread through blood transfusions and by sexual contact. Generally, symptoms are mild and include fever, rash, joint pain and conjunctivitis (red eyes), lasting several days to a a week.  However, Zika is linked to a serious birth defect called microcephaly.  The CDC has issued travel guidance for pregnant women and women trying to become pregnant, warning them to avoid visiting places where the virus is currently circulating.

For up to date information on travel alerts, prevention, transmission, symptoms and treatment, visit the CDC website. Please call the Student Health Center if you have additional questions.
