Optional On-Campus Health Services
Academic Year 2019-2020
Regardless of a student’s enrollment in the RWU Student Health Insurance Plan or another plan, law students have the option of signing up for the optional Roger Williams University Health Services for an annual fee of $400 ($200 per semester), which entitles the student to use Health Services on campus. Students who do not enroll in University’s Health Services may not access the Health Services Clinic but may use their private insurance to seek care at area walk-in clinics or private physician’s offices.
Health Services is located on the second floor of the Center for Student Development. Health Services provides a variety of clinical services to include treatment of illness or injury, routine physicals, GYN exams, contraception, immunizations, and limited lab and pharmacy services. The Health Services fee does not cover all costs associated with an office visit. Additional fees will be incurred for routine physicals, GYN exams, immunizations, and prescriptions. The student’s health insurance will be billed for labs, specialty referrals, and Emergency Room/Urgent Care visits; therefore, a current health insurance card must be on file at Health Services to facilitate direct insurance billing for these services. Health Services is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. Health Services follows the undergraduate academic calendar. The clinic is closed when classes are not in session and on all University holidays. Limited services are available during the winter and spring break. After hours medical care is available at Bristol Medical Center Walk-In Clinic or South Coast Urgent Care. Emergency care is available at Newport Hospital or St. Anne’s Hospital.
Detailed information on Health Services can be found on the RWU Health Services webpage. To enroll, please contact the Office of Student Finance and Records.
