Health Insurance

In compliance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) all MIAD students are required to be enrolled in an ACA compliant health insurance policy. Prior to registration all students will be asked to indicate whether they are enrolled in an ACA compliant health insurance plan or whether they wish to be enrolled in one of the three MIAD plans; they will have to choose one option or the other. Information about the coverage options available through MIAD can be found at Students enrolled in one of the plans offered through MIAD are also eligible to enroll in the dental insurance plan described at the link listed above.

All full-time MIAD students who pay the health fee will be provided full counseling and health services at Marquette University at no additional cost.

Marquette University’s Health Service Clinic is equipped to diagnose and treat most outpatient conditions, and most of its services are free to MIAD students. Students with major medical problems or problems requiring specialized care will be referred to consultants at their own expense. The Clinic is located on the east side of North 16th Street, between Clybourn and Wisconsin Avenue, in the center of the block. The entrance faces the east, away from the street. The only parking is at on-street meters.

Patient Care Hours

To serve you more efficiently, Student Health Services requires an appointment. Same day appointments can be scheduled when available. Walk-ins are not accepted.

Some emergencies may be referred to the Family Care Center at 9th Street and Wisconsin Avenue, at the student’s expense. The Marquette University Student Health Center requires an appointment to be seen by a staff nurse or physician. You must present your MIAD student ID to obtain services from MU’s Health Service Clinic.

To make an appointment, contact Jennifer Crandall (Room RL95) or Tony Nowak (Room RL45C), or phone Marquette Health Center directly at 414-288-7184 and identify yourself as a MIAD student.
