Medical Care in Indianapolis

IUPUI is surrounded by quality health care options.

If you purchased the IU International Student and Scholar Health Insurance Plan (Aetna Insurance), then all of the options below are covered under that plan. If you have a different insurance plan, make sure to find out from the company which locations are covered.

  • IUPUI Student Health and Campus Health

    If you are a student at IUPUI, or a scholar without employee benefits, your first source for medical care is either the IUPUI Campus Health Office (Coleman Hall) or the Campus Center Student Health Office. Both offices can help you with routine health care, illnesses and injuries including:

    • Cold and flu

    • Skin conditions

    • Sports injury

    • Asthma care

    • Women’s health

    • Immunizations

  • Urgent Care

    If you have a non-emergency injury or illness that needs immediate assistance but the IUPUI health center locations are closed, you can visit an Urgent Care center. They can provide many of the services that your doctor would provide and are open on evenings and weekends. The following locations are a 10-minute walk from campus, and are covered under Aetna insurance:

    Healthcare Clinic at Walgreens
    1530 North Meridian Street
    Indianapolis, IN 46202-2307
    (866) 825-3227

    MinuteClinic
    CVS pharmacy
    1545 North Meridian Street
    Indianapolis, IN 46202-2306
    (866) 389-272

  • Pharmacies

    In the United States, you must have a prescription written by a Medical Doctor to purchase many medications. If your doctor gives you a prescription (for a medication), then you need to visit a local pharmacy to purchase it. The closest pharmacies are a 10-minute walk from campus:

    Walgreens
    1530 North Meridian Street
    Indianapolis, IN 46202-2307
    (866) 825-3227

    CVS pharmacy
    1545 North Meridian Street
    Indianapolis, IN 46202-2306
    (866) 389-272

  • Emergency Care

    If you have a true health emergency you should go to a hospital emergency room. If you have Aetna insurance, you should go to the IU Health Methodist Hospital emergency room at 1701 North Senate Blvd, near downtown Indianapolis.

    You should never use an emergency room for non-emergencies! It is the most expensive health care option.

  • Aetna Preferred Providers

    Aetna Student Health administers the IU International Student and Scholar Health Insurance. If you are seeking medical care outside of the options listed above, be sure to use health care providers in Aetna’s network. These are called “Network Providers.” If you go to a provider outside the Aetna network, then your medical care will be more expensive.

  • Dental Care

    Dental care is expensive in the United States, and is not included in most health insurance plans. You can save money on dental care by receiving services through the Indiana University School of Dentistry. Quality services are available under the supervision of professional licensed dentists.
