About Your Appointment
At Student Health and Wellness, we encourage you to develop personal responsibility for your health during your years at UMKC. Staying healthy will give you a competitive edge and help maximize your educational experiences — and we’re here to help.
Important Visit Reminders:
- Arrive 15 minutes prior to appointment time to complete required forms. These forms are about your current and past medical history and are important for us to know to provide you the best care.
- Always cancel or reschedule your appointment at least 1 hour prior to your appointment, if no longer needed. We do charge a $5.00 fee if you do not show for your scheduled appointment. To prevent the $5.00 fee being charged to your student account, please call to cancel or reschedule your appointment at least 1 hour prior to your appointment.
- There is NO free parking at the 4825 Troost building. If you purchased a UMKC parking permit, park in the spaces permitted for student parking. If you do not have a parking permit, you will need to pay to park in the metered parking located on the west side of the parking lot in the first row.
- You can print and complete the Health History Form to bring to your first appointment. This can help to make the check-in process more efficient for you.
When You Arrive at UMKC Student Health and Wellness:
- Check in at the kiosk, where you will electronically sign all necessary consents.
- Provide your completed Health History Form to the front desk staff.
- After you are checked in, have a seat and wait for a Registered Nurse (RN) to call your name.
- The RN will escort you to the examination room, ask for basic health information, take your vital signs (weight, height, temperature, blood pressure, pulse and respirations), and encourage you to have a FREE rapid HIV test.
- Then a Nurse Practitioner (NP) will come in the examination room to further assess your needs.
Each student pays a Student Health Fee along with tuition during registration for courses. The Student Health Fee is capped at 12 credit hours. This fee makes it possible for UMKC Student Health and Wellness to provide health care services to UMKC students.
Additional fees that are not included in your Student Health Fee payment may be charged to you; these typically include payment for immunizations, treatments/medications, lab work or medical supplies. You will be notified of these charges at your appointment.
There is no charge for a visit and assessment, provided you are a UMKC student that is enrolled in the current semester. However, you may be charged for laboratory tests or other specialty services.
No Show Fee – To prevent a $5.00 fee to your student account, please call to cancel or reschedule at lease 1 hour prior to your appointment.
