Partnership with

Patient First Medical Center

We are very excited to share that Notre Dame of Maryland University has a new partnership with Patient First Medical Center at Greenspring Station for our student health services for the academic year (August through May).   Through this new collaboration with Patient First, NDMU is better able to meet the needs of our full-time students.  

Patient First is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day of the year, even holidays, allowing health services to be more readily available to our full-time students. Full-time NDMU students will not use their health insurance nor pay any amount out of pocket for services, including lab tests and x-rays. No appointments are necessary. 

Also, recognizing that Patient First is about 8 miles from our institution, the University has partnered with a taxi service and will be covering any metered rates to and from Patient First at Greenspring Station.  There will be no fee associated with full-time students visiting our new student health partner.

Full-time students seeking health services should go to the Student Life information Center (SLIC) Desk in Doyle Hall Lobby and ask that a taxi be contacted to take them to Patient First.  Upon arrival at Patient First, students will need to present their University ID card before they complete the medical center’s online registration form.  

For more information regarding specific services offered at the Lutherville Greenspring Station site, as well as physician schedules, please go to www.patientfirst.com.  If you have any questions regarding processes for transportation or any other questions, please feel free to contact the Division of Student Life at studentlife@ndm.edu or 410-532-5308.

Part-Time and Graduate Students (College of Adult Undergraduate Studies (CAUS), Graduate Studies, and School of Pharmacy)

As a part-time or graduate student (at least 6 credits per semester), your enrollment in the University-sponsored plan is completely voluntary.  New, incoming Fall 2014 part-time and graduate students, which includes College of Adult Undergraduate Studies (CAUS), Graduate Studies, and School of Pharmacy, have until September 1st to make their choice to enroll in the insurance plan through United HealthCare’s online system.  Those who do opt-in will be billed for this coverage directly through the insurance provider, not the University.  Part-time and graduate students will not be automatically enrolled or billed; therefore, they do not have to waive the insurance plan, which is different from previous years.

While specific programs might require that students have health insurance coverage, enrollment in the University’s plan is not mandated. Please check with your specific program as to health insurance requirements for the upcoming school year.

The purchase of the student injury and sickness insurance coverage provides a one-year non-renewable term of insurance with effective dates of coverage beginning August 1, 2014 through July 31, 2015. This plan is administered by First Risk Advisors and is underwritten by the United HealthCare Insurance Company.
