IU Clinic at University Hospital, Indianapolis

Indiana University is pleased to announce a partnership with IU Health to enhance the availability of primary care services in Indianapolis. This partnership will improve access for employees and Retirees under age 65, and their family members age 18 and older, who are covered by an IU-sponsored medical plan.

IU Health will provide expanded same-day scheduling and after-hours and weekend care at an IU employee clinic located at University Hospital staffed by nurse practitioners. Types of services available include: preventive care, routine office visits, immunizations, labs, and other walk-in medical services such as urgent care. These services will be available later this spring. A map of the location and office hours will be announced in the near future.

This is not a new medical plan and enrollment is not required; coverage for primary care services is based on the member's medical plan.

Bloomington-area employees also have access to same-day scheduling and after-hours care. A map of primary care clinic at IU Health sites and a grid of office hours are located at
