No student will be refused care because of inability to pay at the time of service.
We provide the following services to all students:
When a patient schedules an appointment and does not keep it, he/she is denying another student access to our services. If you need to cancel or change your appointment you must do this at least one hour prior to the scheduled appointment time. If an appointment is cancelled less than one hour prior to the appointment time or the patient doesn’t arrive, it is nearly impossible for us to offer this time to another patient that needs to be seen. Appointments not canceled at least one hour before the scheduled appointment time will be charged a $15 fee. If you are more than 10 minutes late for your appointment, we regret that we will not be able to hold your appointment time and you will be charged a $15 missed appointment fee.
No fee for routine office visits. View the costs page for a full list of fees and costs. Payment due at time of service. Fees may be paid by cash, personal check, or All-Campus card. Unpaid balances will be forwarded to Student Accounts and will incur a $10 service charge.
As a convenience for students, Drew University Health Service will provide ongoing immunotherapy injections (allergy shots) for students who have previously had immunotherapy treatment. Students must present in advance to drop off their serum before they can schedule an appointment to receive their allergy shots. The student must also sign a consent and have their allergist review and sign the Allergist Instructions for Administration of Allergy Extract. Allergy shots are given by appointment only and when a nurse practitioner or physician is on site.
Please complete the following documents and bring them to the Health Service prior to your first allergy appointment.

Drew University Health Services provides STI testing and treatment as appropriate available for Drew Students.
Testing for a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) at Drew University Health Services is not anonymous. Students who want to be tested at Health Services should understand that testing and results are private and confidential. If you have your insurance coverage through the Drew sponsored plan, Health Services will submit your confidential claim on your behalf. All charges may not be shared with anyone besides the student and the insurer. However, if your testing fees are charged to insurance that is held by another person (guarantor) such as a parent, guardian, or spouse, testing may not be confidential. Insurance companies typically notify the guarantor of any charges applied to the policy. If a student has private insurance and prefers not to have the guarantor notified of STI testing, the student may pay Health Services directly to cover the expense of the test. DUHS can also provide treatment in the event that a result is positive for a STI. Once again, if the student pays for this directly, the information will not be shared with the insurer.
There are also testing sites outside of campus where students are able to have testing. These sites may or may not have fees. In Morristown Planned Parenthood has testing facilities and providers who can provide appropriate treatments if needed. Free STI testing sites in NJ also are available for some services.
