COVID Resources

Student Health and Well-Being continues to provide services during the COVID-19 pandemic, albeit in adjusted formats to accommodate current public health guidelines and to serve a community that is more geographically dispersed than we usually are.

Offices have launched more robust telemedicine offerings, but this specific modality of treatment depends on a variety of factors including where the patient is located, if they have signed consent forms, and what treatment is appropriate. Care providers can only provide video telemedicine services in states that where they are licensed, or states that have relaxed restrictions based on the pandemic. For students in states where we currently can not provide video services, the Student Health and Wellness Center (SHWC), the Counseling Center, and Johns Hopkins Student Assistance Program (JHSAP) can speak with you over the phone.

For comprehensive Johns Hopkins COVID news

While this page focuses on connecting current students with health care resources, the university has created a wide-ranging central landing page for all COVID-related information relevant to the Johns Hopkins community, including updates on university operations and medical research.

FAQs on Health Care Access and Insurance

The Office of Student Health and Well-Being has created two sets of Frequently Asked Questions for people who are on the university insurance plans and/or those who have access to the SHWC and University Health Services (UHS). 

Questions related to SHWC and JHSAP and people on the WellFleet Student Insurance Plan are located here.

Questions related to UHS (which serves SOM, SON, and BSPH) and people on the EHP Student Insurance Plan are located here.

Please refer to these pages when you have questions about services (telehealth options, prescription refills, referrals, etc.) and insurance (finding in-network providers near you, filing reimbursement claims, post-graduation continuation of coverage options, etc.).
