Student Health Services FAQs
What tasks do I need to complete in the Patient Portal before starting at Arcadia?
All first-year students are required to submit their health records in accordance with university policy. Before fall orientation, you’ll:
- Upload Physical Exam and Immunization History documents (PDFs or JPGs). Files must be smaller than 4MB. To create a smaller file, scan in black and white or at 50DPI.
- Complete the online Immunization Record. The information you enter will be compared for accuracy with the Immunization History document you submitted.
- Upload a copy of the front and back of your insurance card.
How do I schedule or cancel appointments in my Patient Portal?
Navigate to the “Appointment” tab on the main menu bar:
- Clinic: Medical Clinic
- Reason: Select what best fits your reason for scheduling an appointment
- Provider: Select the available provider
- Time: Select the time available for that provider
Be sure to complete all required information, including forms and insurance information. You will receive a confirmation email that includes what you need to prepare for your appointment.
How do I pay for Student Health services?
Student Health Services does not bill health insurance for office visits, medications dispensed from the office, immunizations administered in the office, or in-office rapid laboratory testing. You can always file a claim with your health insurance company for reimbursement. You can pay with cash, check, or Student Charge (listed as "Student Health Service Charge" for your privacy). We can also bill your health insurance for sent-out laboratory testing (i.e. blood work or urine).
What are the insurance requirements for students?
As per University policy, all full-time undergraduate and graduate students are required to provide verification of health insurance coverage. This verification must be renewed annually. Student Health Services has information for affordable insurance if the student is not already covered under another plan, or if additional insurance is desired.
What should I do in a medical emergency?
Remain calm. If someone is in need of medical attention:
- Dial 215-572-2999 from your cell phone, x2999 from campus phone, or pick up any campus Emergency Phone. Public Safety will respond to an on-campus situation in which a staff member, student, or visitor requires emergency medical assistance. For off-campus medical emergencies, call 911.
- Unless it is unsafe to do so, remain on the scene until Public Safety arrives. Do not move the injured person unless there is danger of further harm. Keep the injured person warm. Do not exceed your training or knowledge when attempting to render first aid.
Who provides services to the students?
Student Health Services is staffed by Certified Registered Nurse Practitioners (CRNPs) who specialize in family medicine. There are MDs available on a limited basis from Chestnut Hill Family Practice.
How confidential are the services?
All services provided by Student Health Services are strictly confidential. Information is not released to parents without written permission, unless the student is in critical condition or there is a threat to self or others.
