HUHS provides urgent care 24 hours a day, every day. All Harvard employees may seek care at HUHS for urgent medical issues that arise while at work, as long as the onset of the illness or injury occurred within the previous 24 hours.
Harvard benefits-eligible employees who do not have a HUHS primary care physician will be responsible for a discounted $25 visit charge, due at the time of service. Employees who are not benefits eligible will be required to pay full charges for HUHS services. Services provided by HUHS’ Quest laboratory will be billed to the employee’s insurance. After urgent care treatment, patients will be directed to their PCP for follow-up services.
If you are injured at work and seek medical assistance at HUHS, you should follow the Workers’ Compensation procedures established by the University.
