UAP Clinic, ISU enter into agreement on student health services

TERRE HAUTE — UAP Clinic has begun providing student health services at Indiana State University, officials say.

The two parties have a temporary agreement for the summer while they iron out final contract details, said Teresa Exline, ISU special assistant to the president for internal relations.

UAP Clinic “will be the provider for the coming year,” she said.

Earlier this year, as part of a budget reduction plan, ISU announced that it would negotiate with a third-party vendor to provide student health services and it would eliminate several jobs at the Student Health Center. At the time, it was announced that 15 jobs would be eliminated.

By using a third-party vendor, ISU said it expected to reduce expenses.

“We’re  pleased to have a local provider of services,” Exline said.

Susan Snider, UAP Clinic marketing and public relations manager, also confirmed that “we are providing services at the Student Health Center” on ISU’s campus. “None of the services [benefiting students] have changed,” Snider said.

UAP has been providing the services for about two weeks, Snider said.

More details will be available later, she said.

She noted that UAP has hired some of the people who had been ISU Health Center employees.

ISU has retained one or two Health Center employees to handle immunization records, Exline said. “We have legal requirements to meet regarding immunization of students.”

John Beacon, ISU vice president of enrollment management, marketing and communication, said that services to students won’t change. “We’ll continue to maintain a health care center on our campus that is managed by UAP staff.”

He described it as a “practical move to partner with someone in the business of health care.”
