New Partnership Gives Alamo Colleges’ Students Easy Access to Health Care
January 7, 2021
At a time when student health is a top priority for the Alamo Colleges, a new partnership with UT Health San Antonio (UTHSA) will provide primary health care services to all Alamo Colleges’ students.
UTHSA’s School of Nursing will offer health care visits through its Wellness 360 primary care practice. Due to COVID-19, services will initially be offered via video through a secure telehealth network. This service is available to students with and without health insurance. A small co-pay will be collected from students without health insurance, but no one will be turned away. Students must call for an appointment and same-day appointments will often be available.
“The health and well-being of our students is our top priority. This new service will give our students an additional resource to address their health care needs,” said Alamo Colleges Chancellor Dr. Mike Flores. “Keeping students healthy is critical to ensuring they succeed. We are thankful to UT Health San Antonio for partnering with us to offer health care at a time when it is so crucial to our students’ success,” he added.
The program will provide treatment for illnesses including:
- Sore throats
- Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
- Sinus infections
- Urinary tract infections
- Other minor health issues
Students with more serious medical issues will be referred for treatment. In addition, students will be able to receive prescription and non-prescription medications and nutrition counseling.
