I am an Online LU student, can I be seen at Liberty University Student
Liberty University Student Health Center is for the use of registered LU students who have paid the Student Health fee or daily use fee and certain other groups with special arrangements.
Do I need to make an appointment?
Our office is open for treatment without an appointment. We offer walk-in care five days a week for illnesses, injuries, and most of your medical needs. Seeing the same provider when there are multiple visits for ongoing medical issues ensures continuity of care. Our providers will make appropriate referrals to outside specialists. General office visits are appropriate for most conditions.
How do I know I will receive quality Student Health care at Liberty
University Student Health Center?
The services offered at LUSHC are provided by licensed physicians, midlevel providers, nurses, health navigators, and counselors who are committed to caring for you and your health.
What are the procedures for Urgent Care?
Students are seen on a walk-in basis in the order of medical urgency, not the order of arrival.
Do I have access to my student’s medical records?
No, your student must sign a Medical Release or give verbal permission to LUSHC for us to discuss that specific appointment. This is not a blanket release; your student must give permission for each visit or diagnosis.
How can I help my student
learn to take responsibility for his or her own healthcare needs?
We suggest your son or daughter visit the health center and pick up a Student Health Center brochure which lists services and contact information. It is important for them to know their own health history: allergies to medications and foods, significant family medical history, medication list (including doses, frequency, and purpose). Make sure they carry a copy of their health insurance card with them at all times, and that they know what coverage they have and how to contact the insurance company. Be sure they have turned in their Health Record form to Student Health Services. (For pertinent medical history, attach copy of records from the treating physician.) Share with them the basics of how to make an appointment: describe symptoms, duration and severity of symptoms, any medications taken, temperature, etc.
What is a patient care team?
Based on the Patient-Centered Medical Home model, Student Health Services has a team of staff members (medical providers, counselors, nurses, support staff, dietitians, wellness professionals, etc.) to ensure a fully integrated, evidenced-based, holistic approach for providing high quality care.
How long will my visit actually take?
The length of time it takes to complete a visit varies depending on the reason for the visit. While most visits lengths are about 15 minutes, you must add the time it takes to check in and do other tasks related to the visit, such as lab tests, X-rays or other procedures.
How is confidentiality
assured at Student Health Services?
All medical care at Student Health Services is confidential. Health care records are completely separate from all other university records. Student Health Services staff members confer with one another as needed to provide integrated medical care for you. Otherwise, Student Health Services will not release any information about you without your written permission, except for regulatory or quality assurance audits or as authorized or required by law, or as necessary in our judgment to protect you or others from a serious threat to health or safety.
If a patient wishes to allow a release of information from his/her records, the Authorization for Disclosure of Protected Health Information is available on our patient forms page.
