Citizens Medical Center is the preferred provider for UHV students needing medical or emergency service. Citizens will examine any currently enrolled student who visits the Emergency Center seeking treatment and will determine whether an emergency medical condition exists regardless of the patient’s ability to pay for care.
Students will be referred to the Citizens Financial Counselor after the medical screening exam and those students will be ultimately responsible for payment to Citizens Medical Center if it has been determined the student has the ability to pay.
Citizens will file insurance on behalf of the student and will also offer a 20% discount off total billed charges should the student wish to make full payment at the time of service. UHV photo identification is required at the time of service to receive the discount. The student should be prepared to pay his/her deductible and co-insurance payment at the time services are rendered.
All medical records remain at Citizens Medical Center and will not be disclosed or released to the University or to any third party.
Citizens is conveniently located at 2701 Hospital Drive in Victoria, across the street from the UHV campus and residential housing. Their phone number is 361-573-9181.
