University Health Care Services

On both campuses, University Health Care (UHC) offers a full range of primary care services to the Pace University community. Both locations are staffed by nurse practitioners (registered nurses with advanced training who are certified to prescribe medication), with physicians as consultants. Services available to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and their families include:

  • Health education
  • Health assessment with complete physical examination
  • Women’s health care
  • Diagnosis and treatment of illnesses (such as sore throat, cough, or other infections
  • First aid for minor injuries
  • Management of chronic health problems such as high blood pressure

UHC is able to bill your insurance company directly. If the insurer does not reimburse UHC for the entire amount of your visit, you will be billed the remainder at a discounted rate.

Student Health Insurance

If students do not have existing health insurance, Pace offers Accident and Sickness Insurance coverage for a fee (New York State requires students to carry health insurance).

Students with existing health insurance may choose to waive insurance, as well. Upon enrollment, Pace will send information regarding waiving university-sponsored health insurance plans.
