Health Services

 

Anna Maria College Health Services
 
Health Services provides healthcare for sick or injured full-time undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled at Anna Maria College. Clinic services are provided by the nurse practitioner and a physician. Treatment offered by Health Services is covered by undergraduate tuition; however, students’ insurance plans may incur charges for additional medical services. Health Services provides assistance for all AMC students in becoming knowledgeable healthcare consumers and assists them in making positive lifestyle choices.
 
AMC Health Services is located at Annex of Trinity East and is open Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Appointments can be made by calling (508) 849-3315 or by stopping by the Health Services Office. Walk-ins are also accepted during the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Walk-in acute care situations and emergencies are given priority attention.
 
Should students need further testing or care, they will be referred to UMass Memorial Medical Center (one of two locations) or St. Vincent Hospital, both located in Worcester.
 
For emergencies after hours, contact the Public Safety Office at (508) 494-9010.
 
The fax number for Health Services is (508) 849-3471.

Confidentiality
AMC's Health Services is legally and ethically obligated to protect students' right to privacy. A student's medical record is strictly confidential. No one other than Health Services staff has access to a student's medical record without the student's prior written permission. This restriction includes the student's parents, AMC's faculty and staff and outside agencies. An authorization for disclosure of medical records is available in Health Services.
 
Insurance Requirements
Massachusetts law requires all full-time and three-fourths-time matriculated students to have comprehensive health insurance. Students will be billed automatically for health insurance unless waived during registration. All full-time and part-time Anna Maria College students will not be charged for visits to the Health Clinic. Students must, however, submit a copy of their health insurance and policy number. Insurance information may be necessary for further treatment outside of Health Services, such as lab work, prescriptions, and/or hospital referrals.
