The best of care for Eureka’s best

A local contract with Advocate Eureka Hospital enables students to be seen by a physician on a limited basis. When necessary, referrals are made to local physicians. Each student must, upon enrollment, submit a detailed health history form for purposes of maintaining accurate medical records. This health history form is required prior to first registration at the College. In accordance with Illinois State law and College policy, students are required to have specific immunizations before enrollment.

Eureka College contracts with the Advocate Eureka Hospital for health clinic services. All students may use the clinic at Advocate Hospital, as long as x-rays and extensive lab work are not needed. There will be a co-pay fee charged to the student’s account through the Business Office for each visit to the clinic. The co-pay for 2014–15 school year will be $10.

    Insurance

    Although Eureka College provides health service through a contract with Advocate Eureka Hospital, medical costs beyond contracted services are the responsibility of the student. Because current health care costs in some cases may be expensive, the College requires that all students show proof of insurance coverage prior to matriculation or accept the College’s approved insurance plan. Students competing in intercollegiate athletics are required to purchase athletic insurance specific to their individual sport regardless of current personal insurance coverage.
