Student Health Fee and Covered Services
The Student Health Fee is a required fee paid by students each semester. These fees contribute to the operational costs of the KU Wichita Adult Medicine.
Payment of the fee entitles the student to office visits with the specified health care provider as well as the student's first annual TB test.
Student Health Insurance
The KU School of Medicine-Wichita offers a health insurance policy for eligible students.
The plan is selected for the Kansas regents schools by the State of Kansas and is offered through KUMC Student Resources. For information about the current policy, visit www.studentresources.net.
Policies and guidelines pertaining to insurance coverage may vary according to the insurance company.
Provide proof of health insurance coverage that meets the health insurance requirements set forth by the KU School of Medicine-Wichita. Failure to comply with health insurance requirements may result in disenrollment.

If there is a change in insurance carrier, a copy of the front and back of the new card must be submitted as indicated above.

Spouse or Domestic Partners
Domestic Partner, for purposes of Student Health Services, is defined as - "An individual who is in a long-term relationship with a current KUSM-W medical student. The couple lives together at the same address."
The KU Wichita Adult Medicine clinic will extend its primary care and urgent care services to a spouse or domestic partner of a current KUSM-W medical student. The spouse or partner will be required to complete a Spouse / Partner Affidavit. After the form is completed, it is to be taken to the Medical Practice Association Billing Office located on the 3rd floor of the main KUSM-W building in suite 3049 for enrollment in the program.
The fees for the spouse or domestic partner are:
Fees (not prorated):
Spring Semester - $100
Summer Semester - $50
Fall Semester - $100
Calendar Year - $225
After paying the fee (cash, check, or credit card) the spouse or domestic partner will be subject to the same discounted charges (procedures, examinations, immunizations, etc.) as KUSM-W medical students. There is no immunization, health history, or physical examination requirements for spouses or partners.
The KU Wichita Adult Medicine clinic does not provide care for children, so this coverage does not extend to children of medical students.
