Find a Doctor, Hospital, Pharmacy


A referral is required before seeking non-emergent care or treatment outside University Health Services (UHS) to ensure the highest level of coverage is received through Student Health Insurance. 

This does not apply if the insured is more than 50 miles from UHS, receiving out of network coverage, or for ob/gyn or maternity care. 

Please call 513-556-2564 for assistance in obtaining a referral.

University Health Services

For students with Student Health Insurance (SHI):

  •  No co-pays or deductibles for services received through UHS.  
  • All primary care at either office location is no charge.
          Primary care includes most lab services (medically necessary) and gynecological services.
  • Onsite pharmacy, $15 for generic and $30 name brand prescriptions
          If generic is available, and insured chooses name brand the price is $60
  • There is no limit on the amount of times an insured can visit UHS.

Emergency Room Visits

There is a $150 copayment (due upon receipt of the emergency room facility’s billing statement) when an insured visits the emergency room. If a call is made to UHS and a verbal referral to the emergency room is obtained from UHS physician (UHS physicians are on call after hours), the $150 copayment is reduced to $50.  If the insured is admitted to the hospital there is no copayment. The UHS physicians can be reached at 513-556-2564.
