Campus Health

Services

We serve the mental and physical health care needs of Union's campus family, as well as collecting required information such as the personal health history, immunization records, and other registration forms. Campus Health serves and supports our campus with non-urgent health and counseling visits. For services we can not offer, we are happy to supply students with referrals in the community for urgent or ongoing therapy/treatment as needed.

The campus nurse provides assistance for minor injuries or illnesses such as colds, sore throats, rashes, intestinal flu, and sinus problems. Some immunizations are given. You can get assistance with arrangements for immunizations for foreign travel. 

Immunization Requirements

Make an appointment for mental health counseling, pastoral counseling, or with the nurse or athletic trainer. We are here to help!

Accidents

LIFE-THREATENING EMERGENCIES:  Dial 911, then call Campus Safety at (402) 486-2911

All full-time students taking 12 or more credit hours are covered by a supplemental accident policy provided by Union College. This supplemental accident insurance will pay up to $5,000.00 per injury for deductibles, co-pays, and out-of-pocket expenses not covered by the student’s primary health policy. Please visit https://www.studentinsurance.com/Client/925 for forms, guides and claims. 

Be sure to keep all original bills from medical providers—the insurance company wants to see the original itemized version.

1. Submit all bills to your primary insurance company;
2. Get an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from the primary company;
3. Submit the EOB with a claim form and any remaining bills to the address on the claim form.
