A per-semester fee is charged to all medical students to cover various aspects of preventive health care, as well as long-term disability insurance coverage. This fee covers required immunizations including Hepatitis B and chicken pox (Varivax) vaccine series. In addition, all PPD administrations are covered. Medical management of students who convert to a positive PPD skin test during enrollment in the Emory University School of Medicine is also covered by the fee including physician fees, laboratory work and chest x-rays, as well as necessary prescription drugs, providing the claim has first been submitted to the student’s health insurance plan. This fee is included in the calculated student budgets for the academic year.
