Health Services and Insurance

Students on the lawn

At Rockhurst, we are committed to our students’ well-being, both in and out of the classroom. With that well-being in mind, Rockhurst has established a collaborative relationship with Neighborhood Walk-In and Family Care located in the North Parking Garage on the Rockhurst campus and Goppert Trinity Family Care (Goppert), located south of the University at 6675 Holmes St., third floor to provide for students’ acute and preventative health care needs. For students enrolled in the Rockhurst student health insurance plan, most services received at Neighborhood Walk-In and Family Care and Goppert are covered by the plan and paid at 100 percent with no deductible or co-payment required.

Current Health Considerations
