SERVICES PROVIDED

The University of Dubuque Health Service is available (free) for all students who are currently enrolled in classes.  Undergraduate, graduate, and seminary students are able to seek medical attention with UD Health Service no matter what insurance plan they are enrolled in.  The services provided by UD Health Service, Unity Point Finley Occupational Health, to you are explained below.  The services also include being seen at Unity Point Finley Convenient Care, after hours and on weekends.

The Medical Coordinator is able to schedule appointments not only with Unity Point Finley Occupational Health, but also with other medical facilities.  The Director is able to assist you with other medical appointments, such as dental, women's health concerns, specialty clinics, etc (within the constraints of your personal medical insurance plan). 

The Medical Coordinator is also able to help you and your parent(s) with insurance questions, such as how to locate a specialist within their insurance plan, and what an EOB is. 

MAKING A MEDICAL APPOINTMENT:

  3. The Medical Referral Form will indicate when you may return to class or if you are being referred to another physician for follow-up.  You must return the referral form to the Medical Coordinator directly after the appointment (if after hours, the next the day).
  4. If you are unable to reach the Medical Coordinator after hours, report to Finley Convenient Care.  If your situation is an emergency, contact UD Security (ext. 3333) or call 911.  Finley Convenient Care will determine if you should be seen at the ER (charges for ER services will be billed to you or your insurance).
