Services

The two offices in combination offer a full spectrum of primary care services including annual check-ups, acute & chronic illnesses, neurological testing, gynecological exams (including Pap smears & contraception prescriptions), prenatal care & delivery, pediatric care, minor surgery & vaccine administration.   

Cost:

All UMB student visits to UMIC and or UMDFCM will not generate a charge after insurance has been billed for services rendered. However, students with outside health insurance must determine eligibility to have diagnostic test done. 

Insurance:

ALL STUDENTS MUST HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE.  A Care first Blue Cross/Blue Shield plan is available to all UMB students.  This plan provides excellent coverage, low rates & no deductible when using Blue Cross network providers.  Prescription coverage is also included.  Dental & Vision coverage is also available.  Please contact Student Accounts for further information at (410)706-2930.  

Student Waivers:

Students who have outside health insurance coverage & wish to waive the schools insurance plan must submit a waiver & proof of insurance with comparable benefits to the Finance Office at 29 South Paca Street, lower level.  The waiver will permit Student Accounts to remove the insurance charges from your bill.

** This site is staffed by faculty from the School of Medicine and has residents and medical students present as learners.  If you identify yourself as a medical student and request continuity care at this site, you will be assigned to a provider who does not participate in medical student education and evaluation.  However, in an urgent situation, you may be seen by a different faculty member with educational responsibilities.  The campus health insurance does permit you to see providers off campus, if you prefer.
