The Health Center is nurse-directed and consists of two registered nurses and an office coordinator.
Services are available to ALL Adrian College students, including full-time, part-time and commuting students.
When a student is seen in the Health Center, there is no cost for the nurse visit. There may be charges for medications, immunizations and treatment supplies. These charges may be paid for or charged to the student’s account as a health service fee. Receipts for medications or immunizations can be requested by the student. The student is then responsible for submitting the request to their private medical insurance. Check with your insurance carrier regarding submission of these claims. The Health Center does not bill private insurance companies.
