Beth Israel Occupational Medical Clinic
317 East 17th Street (between 1st and 2nd Avenues), 2nd floor
Primary care health services for students registered at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law are available through the Health Services Clinic at Beth Israel. While clinic services are not automatically free to Cardozo students, those students enrolled in the AHP Student Health Insurance Plan will have the deductible and co-insurance waived for primary care doctor visits at this clinic. Students not enrolled in AHP may also utilize the clinic services, but will be responsible for all balances.
You can arrange for care by contacting the Clinic at 212.420.2882. Primary care services are provided at the Beth Israel Occupational Medical Clinic located at 317 East 17th Street. Students may call between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays to schedule an appointment during the week. During weekends and late hours, you may call the Clinic to speak to a clinician regarding a medical issue. However, please note, in a medical emergency, call 911, or proceed to the nearest emergency room.
The Health Services Clinic provides centralized, toll-free scheduling and an inquiry phone line during regular business hours. A program coordinator will obtain insurance information, make specialty physician referrals during business hours, and schedule expedited routine medical care services and health promotion services by a physician, mid-level practitioner or physician's assistant at the above address or in affiliated physician's offices.
When presenting for care to the above clinic or doctor's office, you will be required to show your current Yeshiva University Cardozo School of Law identification and your current insurance card. You will be responsible for compliance with the requirements of your health insurance plan. (See section below on Health Insurance. As there is no insurance fee charged by Cardozo, there is no automatic insurance coverage). Office visits will be billed to your insurance and any balances are your responsibility. However, if you have obtained Yeshiva University health insurance coverage with AHP, the co-insurance and deductible will be waived for primary care visits at the Clinic office on 17th Street. If you do not have insurance, contact the Clinic to see if you may be eligible for financial assistance.
Proof of Immunization
In accordance with New York State law, all Cardozo students born on or after January 1, 1957, are required to show proof of immunization against measles, mumps, and rubella. Students must show documentation of two doses of measles vaccination and one dose each of mumps and rubella, submit the results of a blood test indicating immunity to the three illnesses, or submit documentation of the eligibility for a waiver of the immunization requirement. Failure to provide proof of immunization may result in the inability of the student to register for classes. Information on immunization requirements is available through the Office of Admissions.
