We care about you. Your health matters.

Healthcare is an important and precious resource, and we want to help you get the most out of your health care. That’s why we are making it even easier for you to access a larger number of preventive care screening and immunizations options right here at NKU. These screenings may lead to early detection of a health problem, allowing treatment options that may be less drastic and less expensive.

Preventative screenings on campus include mammography, stroke and cardiovascular, blood pressure and the NEW NKU Cares PCP Program (details below).

Refer to the  Classes, Registrations and Events section of the Employee Wellness page for a full list of upcoming preventive screenings.

NEW! NKU Cares Primary Care Provider Program

Quality health care means getting the care you need when you need it.  Getting quality care can help you stay healthy or recover when you become sick. Choosing and establishing a relationship with a Primary Care Provider (PCP) is the key to receiving quality healthcare.  Meeting with them annually to check your health status and discuss your health issues is one of the most important things you can do for your wellbeing.

NKU Cares about your health and wellbeing and encourages you to take an active role in caring for yourself. By taking the time to meet with your PCP for an annual check-up and biometric screening, all benefit-eligible employees will be rewarded with a $25 All Card gift certificate.

*Available to all benefit-eligible faculty and staff. The NKU Cares PCP Program will replace the onsite annual health assessment.

Receiving your reward is simple:

1.     Print your NKU Cares PCP visit form and complete the top portion. Click HERE to print the form.

2.     Take the form to your annual check-up and have your primary care provider sign and date the bottom of the form and return to you.

3.     Submit your form to the HR front desk (Lucas Admin Center, 7th floor) and receive your $25 All Card gift certificate. Limit one per year, per preventive screening.

PCP FAQ’s

Who is a Primary Care Provider?
A PCP is a healthcare provider - a Physician, Nurse Practitioner or Physician's Assistant (PA) - who specializes in internal medicine or family medicine. An internal medicine provider deals with prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adults. A family primary care provider specializes in the care and treatment for children as well as adults.

Why do I need a PCP, especially if I don’t get sick?
Prevention is the best way to stay healthy. Your PCP can coordinate all of your health care in one place. Inviduals with an established relationship with their PCP have better management of chronic conditions, lower healthcare costs and higher satisfaction of care.
