Medical Services  

Eligibility and Cost
Services of the medical providers are available to students and their spouses or domestic partners. Continuing, full-time students who have paid the student fee are eligible for routine office visits at no charge from the week of Boiler Gold Rush through graduation. All other eligible students and spouses or domestic partners are eligible to be seen, but will be charged for office visits. All other medical services do have charges associated with them. This includes, but is not limited to, services such as physical exams, office procedures, medication administration, laboratory tests, x-rays, and physical therapy. Please ask if you have questions about the cost of services. PUSH is in network for most United Healthcare and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield plans. We will also bill any insurance you present. It is always best to call your insurance company prior to your visit to verify your coverage and benefits.

Covid-19 (and ALL Respiratory Illness) Management 
The CDC no longer recommends isolation for a COVID-19 diagnosis. It isnow approached like all other respiratory illnesses such as colds, the flu and RSV. However, it is recommended that you not be around others until your have no fever (temperature of 100.4 F or 38C or higher) for 24 hours and symptoms are improving. You should mask around others for an additional 5 days beyond that. For additional information, please visit this CDC link:

Prescription Management of ADD/ADHD
Patients may be evaluated for a potential or existing diagnosis of ADD/ADHD. There are several options for medication treatment for ADHD. PUSH physicians and Nurse Practitioners prescribe non-stimulant medications. This policy is designed to promote student safety, since stimulant medications are controlled substances with a risk of abuse and dependence and can have serious adverse effects if combined with substances of abuse.

Infusion Services
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 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.

Sexual & Reproductive Health Services

Eating Disorder Care
At Purdue University Student Health we recognize that disordered eating is often a cause of serious concern. Specific PUSH medical providers are available to provide confidential, compassionate and individualized care for patients with these complex medical disorders.
PUSH providers believe that a coordinated multidisciplinary team approach is the safest and most effective way to treat these disorders. If you choose to seek care for an eating disorder through PUSH, we will plan to work as a team with your other care providers.
