Introducing Fenway Health
fenway health

In our continuing effort to enhance the services available to NUSHP members, this year we are proud to announce our new partnership with Fenway Health. Founded in 1971 by Northeastern students, Fenway Health provides comprehensive medical, behavioral health, pharmacy, dental and eye care services. Fenway Health's new 100,000 square foot facility, just a short distance from campus is located at 1340 Boylston Street (near Fenway Park). All of the services listed below are provided at this location.

NUSHP has negotiated a reduced co-payment schedule for medical services, preventive dental care services, and vision exams. There is a 50 percent reduction in the required copayments for prescription drug copayments for NUSHP members who are established patients for Fenway Health. NUSHP members have access to these reduced prescription drug copayments if they first have a medical office visit, behavioral health visit, receive vision or dental care services, or receive a complementary care service (e.g., massage, chiropractic, or acupuncture). Prescription medications may also be delivered for pick-up at University Health and Counseling Services or private residences (other than Northeastern University's residence halls/housing) in the Boston area for established patients.
