Health Services and Health Insurance

The Registered Nurse provides acute triage for minor illness and injuries, and will assist with physician referral as needed. All services are confidential and treatment is free of charge. An appointment is required to see the nurse. Contact the office receptionist to make an appointment by calling 314-246-4207. The Student Health Services email address is: health@webster.edu.

Public Safety is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergency care. Contact the Webster University Public Safety Office at 314-246-6911.

Student Health Services Electronic Health Records System Information

Health forms, health insurance documents and vaccination information are completed and submitted to the Student Health Services Department through the electronic patient portal.

  • Students access the electronic site through the address webster@medicatconnect.com.
  • Students log-in to the Patient Portal using their Connections ID and Password.
  • Follow the directions on the portal to complete the requirements.

Health documents must be electronically submitted through the patient portal for review and approval by the registered nurse before a new residential student will be allowed to move into University assigned housing. All documents must be translated and submitted in the English language. The registered nurse will notify the student by email if documents are incomplete or further information is required.

Vaccinations

  • All new students attending any of the Webster University campus locations in Missouri are required by Missouri law to electronically submit the Tuberculosis Screening questionnaire and Testing Requirements document.
  • All resident students at the Webster Groves campus (residing in East, West, Maria, Webster Village Apartments, Glen Park or Big Bend) are required to provide proof of the following vaccinations:
    • COVID-19 (boosters not required).
    • MMR vaccination: two doses of the MMR vaccination which is Measles - Mumps - Rubella.
    • Meningitis vaccination: has multiple names such as as Menactra, Menveo, MCV4, MPSV4 given at age 16 or later; protects against Meningitis A, C, Y and W-135. If this vaccination was given before age 16 a booster vaccination is required.

FAILURE TO SUBMIT THE HEALTH FORMS AND INSURANCE DOCUMENTS PRIOR TO MOVING INTO HOUSING WILL JEOPARDIZE YOUR HOUSING PLACEMENT AND AN ADMINISTRATIVE "HOLD" WILL BE PLACED ON THE STUDENT'S ACCOUNT. AN ADMINISTRATIVE HOLD WILL RESTRICT THE STUDENT FROM MAKING ANY CHANGES TO THE CURRENT AND FUTURE COURSE SCHEDULES.
