Services We Provide
PLU Health Services is pleased to offer primary care services to keep you as happy and healthy as possible during your PLU education. This guide represents only a portion of the services we offer, and we invite you to contact us if you have additional questions or concerns.
We offer the following services:
Health Services provides services for acute and chronic illnesses. We’re happy to attend to a sprained ankle, a cold, a rash, or more chronic problems like asthma, high blood pressure, and allergies.
In the event that you require an x-ray, MRI, or referral to a specialist, we will work with you to find a facility or healthcare provider who accepts your primary insurance plan.
Plan B (levonorgesterol), an emergency contraception pill, is available at PLU Health Services for a discounted price. Plan B can be used up to 72-hours after an unprotected sexual encounter. It is not 100 percent effective, but can significantly reduce the risk of pregnancy.
If the Health Services clinic is closed, you can purchase Plan B without a prescription at most retail pharmacies.
We offer a limited program for immunizations for students.
- TdAP (Free for undergraduate students)
- Seasonal Flu Vaccine (No Charge)
- PPD ($25 per dose)
If you have questions about receiving immunizations, please contact the Health Services team.
We have the ability to conduct certain tests on-site at the Health Services clinic. These include:
- rapid screening for strep throat
- STI screening (1 free per academic year, $30 for each subsequent )
These services are offered at no charge to students covered under the Wellness Access Plan, and for a small fee for other students.
For other laboratory tests, such as blood testing, urine cultures, wound cultures, and other services, we are able to conduct or obtain a blood test and send the specimen to an off-campus lab. There is a fee for this service, but we offer greatly reduced fees. We are happy to provide you with a receipt for any laboratory tests so that you can submit it to your insurance company for reimbursement, if applicable.
PLU Health Services maintains a safe, sensitive, and confidential environment to discuss any issues relating to sexual orientation and gender identification. Our provider has received specialized education on the unique needs of transgender, non-binary, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and asexual clients.
Information about a student’s health care is always kept strictly confidential.
Health Services has an on-site pharmacy stocked with commonly-prescribed medications, some over-the-counter medications. We offer these medications to you at greatly reduced costs. We even offer some over-the-counter medications at no cost.
You must have an in-person office visit with a PLU nurse practitioner in order to obtain medication from our in-house pharmacy.
We will provide you with a receipt for any medication we dispense to you. You are then welcome to submit the receipt to your insurance company for reimbursement, if applicable.
If we do not have medication in our pharmacy, we will happily write a prescription for you, or send an electronic prescription to the pharmacy of your choice. We are also able to send prescriptions to mail-order pharmacies and Kaiser pharmacies.
It could take up to 48-hours to process and fill medications at PLU Health Services.
Health Services works in close collaboration with the PLU Counseling Center. The two offices work together to find the best places for you to seek care for any mental health concerns you may have. In collaboration with the Counseling Center, we offer evaluation and treatment of anxiety, depression, and more.
We offer counseling and referrals related to tobacco, alcohol, and drug abuse.
We strongly encourage students to download and use the TimelyCare app as an immediate resource for mental health care.
When needed, Health and Counseling centers can make referrals to off-campus mental health providers when the need arises.
