Announcements

IMMUNIZATION COMPLIANCE DEADLINE IS 9/30/2021
September 16, 2021

Students who have not entered their required immunization dates online, or who have not received the required immunizations by end of business on September 30, 2021 will have holds placed on their academic accounts. Academic holds will be placed beginning October 1, 2021. Immunizations can be scheduled at PUSH by calling 765-494-1700. If you are unable to find a convenient appointment at PUSH before this deadline date, you can get immunizations at any local pharmacy.

Late Cancellations and No Show Fees
September 8, 2021

Beginning Monday September 13, 2021, all appointments not canceled more than 2 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time will result in a $25.00 late cancellation fee. There is a high demand for PUSH services. Late cancellations and no shows take away opportunities for other students to get care when they need it. You may cancel appointments by calling 765-494-1700 or through the Patient Portal. Additional information about our no show policy and how to appeal a no show fee can be found here.

Credit Card Payments At PUSH
August 31, 2021

Beginning October 1, 2022, to protect the security of our patients, PUSH will no longer be accepting credit card payments over the phone. We will continue to accept credit card payments in person. Any unpaid balances not paid in person will be sent to the Bursar's office and can be paid through their normal processes.

Sharing Access to Medical Records

Departing Provider
July 29, 2021

PUSH would like to announce the departure of Kate Kollman, NP. If you are a current patient of Kate and she has suggested another PUSH provider for your ongoing care, you may wish to schedule an appointment with that provider to discuss your ongoing medical needs. You may also refer to our provider biography page to learn more about our other providers and determine which provider best fits your personal needs. Appointments may be scheduled through the Patient Portal, or by calling 765-494-1700.

Medical Management of ADD/ADHD
June 7, 2021

As a new Purdue student, you may have some questions about managing your ADD/ADHD. Options are available on campus and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) may be the best source of therapy and medical management for you. However, if you have no other psychological concerns and you have a history of stable and medically managed ADD/ADHD, PUSH medical providers may be the answer for prescription management. Because PUSH has a specific process to ensure that you are receiving the care you need, please review the information regarding ADD/ADHD care provided on our Medical Services page, and make your Triage appointment (765-494-1700) soon after you arrive on campus in the fall.

Infusion Services
May 19, 2021

As part of our efforts to meet student needs, PUSH offers on-campus infusion treatment services for both chronic and acute medical conditions. Our team of skilled nurses will work directly with your infusion prescribing provider (in or out of state) to ensure that your treatment plan is not interrupted with the transition to college living. Contact us today (765-494-1700 or shc@purdue.edu) to find out how we can help you get started on the process. The PUSH nursing team will determine if your infusion is appropriate for PUSH to provide in our facility; provide the patient and/or family member with PUSH contacts to discuss billing and insurance; reach out to the ordering provider to obtain the infusion order and medication and arrange for the first infusion appointment. We know that infusions may disrupt your life. PUSH is able to minimize that disruption for most students and we look forward to providing that service for you if needed.

Yellow Fever Vaccine Now Available
May 12, 2021

PUSH now offers the Yellow Fever vaccine to all eligible students. The price of the vaccine varies and cost can be provided at the time of service. All insurance is accepted, however we are only in-network with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and United Healthcare. You can schedule an appointment with our Allergy and Immunizations department by logging into the Patient Portal, or by calling 765-494-1700. We look forward to serving your travel needs.

Voicing Concerns at PUSH
October 19, 2020

Our goal at the Purdue Student Health Center is to provide you with the best possible care and services. If your experience did not meet our goal, please let us know by contacting the Student Health Center Patient Advocate, Marilyn Foster, at 765-494-1720, or in person at PUSH room 132. You may also report your concern to the Purdue University Enterprise-wide hotline 866-818-2620 or https://www.purdue.edu/hotline/.

Because we know that health insurance and billing can also be a source of concern, we want to help with that as well. Please contact Lori Blair, Business Services Manager at 765-496-3138 for billing and insurance concerns.

Detailed medical bills are available to students online for up to 2 years from their date of service through the Patient Portal.
