Exeter Summer Medical Services

Phillips Exeter Academy’s Lamont Health and Wellness Center offers a variety of health care services to Exeter Summer students. They are here to help students with health concerns of all types, minor and major, emotional and physical. The Lamont Health and Wellness Center is located on Tan Lane, behind the Phelps Science Center. Walk-in services are available from 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. Emergency services are available at all times, with a registered nurse on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A physician is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week as well. In addition, beds are available for daytime or overnight care.

General Medical Services

Students may seek health information, advice, and treatment by registering at the front desk of Lamont Health and Wellness Center. If possible, make your visit at the beginning of a free period. We do not want waiting room time to interfere with classes. If you are not well enough to attend class or other Academy appointments, you will be allowed to rest at the Health Center until you are feeling better. If your problem requires the attention of the physician, the nurse will either consult with the physician at that time, or schedule you for the soonest available physician appointment.

Fees

Healthcare provided to any student within the Lamont Health and Wellness Center is free of charge and there are no bills associated with these services. Other services, including laboratory tests, imaging/x-rays, prescriptions, specialist visits, emergency room trips and hospitalizations, are items that will be charged to your insurance plan. Treatment costs that are not covered by private insurance plans are the responsibility of the student’s parent/legal guardian.

Prescriptions and Psychotropic Medications

Prescriptions and over the counter medications may be obtained through the Health Center and local pharmacy, as appropriate. We discourage the stocking of any medications in the dorm, and would like to be made aware of any prescription medications the students will be bringing to school. All psychotropic medications must be stored at the Health Center, and will be dispensed in weekly allotments. These medications include stimulants such as Vyvanse, Ritalin, Concerta, Strattera, and Adderall and antidepressant medications such as Wellbutrin, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, and Imipramine. This policy serves to protect all students. We require that individuals prescribed these medications inform us of their treatment and bring their medication to the Health Center at the beginning of Exeter Summer or at initiation of treatment. We are sensitive to issues of confidentiality and can assure students that their privacy will be respected.

Athletic Trainers/Sports Injuries 

The Athletic Training Center (ATC) is located on the ground level of Love Gymnasium, adjacent to the basketball courts and the ice hockey rinks. The ATC functions as an extension of the Health and Wellness Center and is staffed by certified/licensed athletic trainers. Working under the direction of the school physician, the staff provides services for the prevention, recognition, treatment and rehabilitation of orthopedic and sports-related injuries. 

Health Forms 

Health forms are required and must be submitted by May 15, 2020. All forms are to be completed on the Patient Portal. You may access the portal at exeter.medicatconnect.com using your student’s Phillips Exeter Academy credentials.

We regret to inform you that we remain unable to offer health insurance coverage to our domestic students at this time. Please know that this is not by choice and is completely outside of the Academy’s control. Rather, it reflects federal and state regulatory issues that are impacting private secondary schools overall.

We recognize that not being able to offer a domestic student health plan may be a worrisome change for some of our families. There are several ways in which you might be able to maximize healthcare coverage for your domestic student. Please know that any healthcare provided to any student within the Lamont Health and Wellness Center is free of charge and there are no bills associated with these services. Other services, including laboratory tests, imaging/x-rays, prescriptions, specialist visits, emergency room trips and hospitalizations, are items that will be charged to your insurance plan.

If your student currently has a state-funded healthcare plan like Medicaid, there may be some services that are only covered within your specific state of residence. You can check the coverage by calling the number on your insurance card or checking the following link: www.healthcare.gov/medicaid-chip/childrens-health-insurance-program

If your child has no insurance coverage or has state-funded healthcare, and has health conditions that require medications, visits to specialty providers, or regular laboratory tests, please contact us to discuss this further. We would like to partner with you to assure we provide seamless care for your student during Exeter Summer 2020. We look forward to hearing from you to help work through your concerns.
