Student Health Services
The variety of services available at Creighton University Student Health Services will meet the health care needs of most students. Every effort is made to help students obtain appropriate consultation or referral when additional or specialized services are required. A physician, physician's assistant, or nurse practitioner provides services. Services are available to all currently enrolled Creighton University students.
*Acute Illness and Injury Care
*Health and Wellness Promotion
*Physical Exams (including Pap Smears)
Services are supported by student fees, personal insurance, and/or self pay. Services not covered by personal/family health insurance will be the financial responsibility of the student.
It is essential that a current insurance card be presented at each visit.
How to Obtain Student Health Services

Who Provides the Services?
Physicians, and nationally certified Physician's Assistants and Nurse Practitioners are the core provider staff. An auxiliary staff of Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, Medical Assistants and clerical personnel supports them.
Medical specialty and dental care is provided by referral to physicians and dentists within the community.
Our providers participate with many insurance plans, including BCBS. We are not currently Medicaid or Medicare preferred providers.
All claims are automatically submitted to the insurance carrier indicated by the student at the time services are provided.
It is important to check with your insurance plan to verify the benefit level for services obtained away from home. Some plans require a referral for Out of Network services. The student will be responsible for initiating the referral process required by their insurance company.
After Hours Care
Urgent care services are available at local urgent care centers. These centers have laboratory and x-ray services and can treat most acute illness or injury. Creighton University Medical Center's Emergency Department is conveniently located adjacent to campus. Any after-hours care received will be the financial responsibility of the student.
