This won’t hurt a bit.

Deacon Health (DH) is here to help keep you as healthy as possible. College is more fun that way. When you’re sick, we’ll do everything we can to get you back to 100%. But more importantly, we provide you with the essential knowledge and skills to form lifelong habits that lead to sustained wellbeing.

Through a variety of services—including a 24-hour on-call nurse service available during the academic year—we are committed to promoting and maintaining the health of our students with a comprehensive approach involving health education, health maintenance, acute care, appropriate care of chronic illnesses, and referral assistance.

We specialize in college health and understand how to help students best navigate their return to academics after an illness or injury. We want to be your first choice for preventive and acute healthcare needs.

We are a primary care clinic providing care to Wake Forest University’s Reynolda Campus students. Our team includes board-certified physicians, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, certified medical assistants, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, lab directors, radiology technicians, and our medical office staff.

The following sections will give more details on where to get started with Deacon Health.

What you need to know

Health information and immunization

Wake Forest University, per North Carolina state law, requires documentation of certain immunizations for students attending college. Forms must be completed inside the Deacon Health portal, and all documentation must be uploaded there by July 1.

What you’ll need to complete these required forms:

  • Your immunization records, including names of vaccines, dates given, healthcare provider signature, clinic’s address, phone number, and facility stamp (or official government stamp).
  • Save a copy of your official immunization records as a PDF (you will need to upload it).

Student health fee and insurance

Most services at Deacon Health are covered by the Student Health Fee. In addition, there are discounted “fee-for-service” charges for medications, laboratory tests, observation care, procedures, and some supplies. Payment can be made by cash, check, credit/debit cards, Student Blue Insurance or charged to the student’s account.

Each student is given a copy of the medical charges incurred on the date of service, which can be used for insurance filing.

Deacon Health neither participates in nor files insurance claims on behalf of patients.

Student Health Insurance Program (SHI)

Health insurance coverage is required as a condition of enrollment for all degree-seeking students. Students may waive the coverage if they can demonstrate comparable coverage. Please see the Student Health Insurance Program website for more details about benefits, policy, enrollment/waiver instructions, and eligibility.

The deadline to enroll or waive this coverage is August 1. All students who do not complete this form will be automatically enrolled and billed.
