Student Health Services
Despite students best efforts to stay healthy, coughs, sore throats and other irritants or pains can disrupt students performance and schedules. And while at college,visits home or to a student's personal physician are often an inconvenience because of time or distance. Therefore, St. Louis College of Pharmacy has a contract with Saint Louis University (SLU) that allows STLCOP students access to SLU's Student Health Services. All STLCOP students pay a "student health services" fee of $40 per semester to use their facilities.
SLU Student Health Services is a clinic, on the Saint Louis University campus, that students can go to receive health care while they are away from home. Students are charged based on the services they receive. The clinic accepts most insurance plans of area providers. Students need to show their STLCOP ID and insurance card at the time of their visit. Students can contact the clinic directly to see if their plan is accepted. Students should also check with their individual insurance provider to find out if they need a referral before going to the SLU Student Health Services clinic.
SLU Student Health Services is located on the ground floor of the Marchetti Tower East, one block east of Grand Blvd., on SLU's campus. Reserved parking spaces are in the building's lot and in the Laclede parking garage. If a student does not have a vehicle, STLCOP security will drive them to and from the facility. Physicians are available between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Students can call for an appointment or ask questions between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 314.977.2323.
