Post Graduation or Deregistration Medical Care Policy
The medical services at Student Health Services are for currently registered University of Stony Brook students. However, recognizing that (1) a student whose student status was recently terminated (“former student”) may seek health services after termination of his/her student status at the University at Stony Brook; (2) the former student had been under the care of Student Health Services just prior to the termination of student status; and (3) the former student may suffer adversely from an abrupt discontinuation of medical services; then, under these three (3) conditions, it is permissible to provide care to a former student for up to three (3) weeks post termination of registered student status under the following limitations:
1) Care is for follow-up regarding previously diagnosed medical problems only.
2) Students who have Medically Withdrawn are not eligible for continuing care.
3) No new medical problems are addressed at this time, unless emergent.
4) The former student shall be advised that treatment will cease in three (3) weeks, he/she shall be actively encouraged to seek medical care and treatment from other health care professionals.
5) The former student shall be informed that pharmacy benefits ceased upon de-registration, and therefore, the student shall be informed that he/she will have to fill any prescriptions at an independent pharmacy at his/her own expense.
6) In-house lab work shall not be obtained. If lab work is required for a former student, a script for the lab work and a referral to an outside lab shall be supplied to the former student. The former student shall be informed that such lab services will be at his/her own expense.
7) Any student may see the medical director (or designee) for a discussion of any medical issue as it pertains to any administrative concern.
