Who Can Use Health Services

Student Access to Health Services

Bard Health Services is open to all undergraduate students,and any graduate student who paid the Health Service fee. You do NOT need to have the Bard Health Insurance to be seen at Health Services. All undergraduate students pay a general health services fee, even if you opt out of the Bard College health insurance plan. This fee is separate from health insurance and only covers visits and most of the services provided at Health Services. It is charged each semester.

If you do not have the Bard insurance, please bring a copy of your current valid health insurance to your visit. This information is necessary if any outside labs, including most bloodwork, is ordered. You are responsible for knowing how your insurance works, especially which laboratory is covered. 

Please make an appointment by calling (845) 758-7433. We are open 9am- 7pm Monday through Thursday, and 9am-5pm on Friday.


There are many resources available to assist with your decision to stop smoking. We offer nicotine replacement products and counseling at Health Service. Or you can get advice and free nicotine replacement products from New York State here.
Also check out the Quit Smoking Community or join their Facebook group for online support.
