UHS does not cover hospital inpatient, emergency room, or immediate care treatment provided outside our clinic. We recommend that every student have hospitalization insurance that includes emergency room coverage, such as the SHIP Health Insurance Plan.
Immediate or urgent care clinics are available at various locations in Madison. They provide evening and weekend health care for acute problems that are not life-threatening. Examples of illnesses and injuries managed in this clinics include rashes, upper respiratory infections, sore throats, earaches, headaches, abrasions, lacerations, flu, back pain, sprains, and minor fractures. These centers operate on a first-come, first-serve basis with no appointment necessary. Hours of operation may vary, but most close by 9 pm, so call ahead.
