Required Health Information
All students must complete necessary health forms, which are accessible by logging into the student health portal (lynchburg.studenthealthportal.com) with one’s University network account username and password.

Health services are available to all actively enrolled students. To receive services, all necessary forms must be completed on the student health portal.
Students may schedule appointments with Health Services by using the online student health portal and by calling or visiting the Health Center. Primary health care is provided by nurse practitioners and registered nurses. A family practice physician is on campus one hour per week. Referrals to physicians or other community health care providers are arranged when necessary or at the request of the student.
All consultations and medical records are kept completely confidential. No information is discussed with or released to anyone without the student’s written consent.
Routine visits to the Health Center are provided without charge. Charges for medication, lab tests, and special examinations can be billed to the student’s University account or paid for by the student.
Kroger Pharmacy (434.384.3666) offers prescription delivery to the Health Center for students. Kroger provides prescription billing and files with insurance companies when required information is provided.
All students are strongly encouraged to have health insurance. Considerable information is available at healthcare.gov. Students should review their health insurance policies carefully to determine which physicians and medical services are covered in the Lynchburg city area and to ensure that coverage is provided for both routine and emergency medical care, as well as for prescriptions.
If medical care is needed when the Health Center is closed, a list of local health care resources can be found at the website After-Hours Care.
In an emergency, students can call the Campus Safety and Security emergency number (434.544.5555).
The Health Center does not have on-call or after-hours coverage and is closed during academic breaks. Students are responsible for obtaining needed prescription refills prior to academic breaks.
Medical Excuse Policy
University of Lynchburg Health Services does not provide medical excuses for class absences or tardiness. However, as a courtesy during the last two weeks of the fall and spring semesters, Health Services will, with the student’s written permission, notify instructors via email of the dates that the student was seen by a health professional at the Health Center.
