The Health Center is located in West Hall and is open on a regular basis during the school year.
Students are encouraged to use the more cost effective student health services. Nursing services and physician assistant services are available to students at no cost.

Student Health & Accident Insurance
Methodist University no longer offers an insurance plan resulting from the national health care laws known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). PPACA requirements took effect in January 2014, and require all individuals to have adequate health insurance coverage.
All international students are required to carry adequate health and accident insurance. A special policy is available for international students and information may be obtained through the International Programs office.
