Get information about Haverford’s Health Service requirements. Thank you for taking the necessary steps to meet these important deadlines.

July 21

  • Physical Examination (PE) Form, including record of current immunizations. Please send the PE Form, completed by a health care provider (not a parent), to Health Services via fax or mail, or scan and email the form to both the administrative assistant and director. Contact information is below.
  • Confidential Health Record (available 6/1), which is due online via the Student Entry Record (SER). Please refer to the First-Year blog, as instructed by Dean Raisa Williams, for instructions on completing the SER record. A late fee of $75 will be charged for failure to submit fully completed health forms by July 21, 2012.

August 1

All Haverford students are required to have proof of health insurance. Students may waive or enroll in health insurance only on line. Waive, enroll or see a full list of accepted insurance plans.

A late fee of $30 will be charged for failure to complete the on line registration by August 1, 2012.

Students are responsible for all incurred medical expenses. Effective August 2011, Health Services accepts some medical insurance for clinical services. Students can submit bills directly to their insurance plan. Students can also continue to submit all charges to their student account for reimbursement from their insurance plans or pay by check or cash.

Students should bring their insurance card, or copy of their card, with them during their first visit to the Health Center for us to scan into our system. Should a student drop or change coverage at any point during the school year, he or she must notify Health Services immediately of the change.

August 1  (International Students)

Note that, from time to time, overseas health insurance has proven not to work in favor of students. Since the United States does not offer public health services for non-citizens, hospital costs can be alarming. Because Haverford requires its students to have adequate private health insurance, we highly suggest you purchase the college plan.

Students must meet the Health Services requirement before arriving on campus for the International Students Orientation (ISO).

Due before or upon arrival on campus

If you will be younger than 18 years of age at time of arrival, your parent/guardian must complete the Consent to Treat a Minor Form and send it to Health Services.

August 29 (Opening Day)

If any health form or insurance registrations are not met, you will need to report directly to Health Services upon arrival.

Contact Information

The Health Clinic is closed between the end of spring semester and the start of fall semester. However, we will review voicemail and email and follow through as needed on a weekly basis. Please do not call other departments on campus with Health Services related issues. Thank you!
