New England Integrated Health, LLC (NEIH) is offering on-campus services for Tufts students.


Acupuncture appointments are offered on campus in the lower level of the Health Service by appointment. 


New and existing patients are able to book online. Appointments can also be made by phone by calling 617-297-8549.

Is my visit covered by insurance?

Student Health insurance through United HealthCare Student Resources covers acupuncture. There is no copay for the acupuncture services provided by NEIH and 24 visits per school year are allowed.  For all other insurance plans please schedule online, complete your intake forms, and we will verify your insurance coverage prior to your first visit.   

What to expect?

Appointments are one hour long and students will have access to all of our typical services, including acupuncture, cupping, and gua sha.

Is there a cancellation fee for last-minute canceled appointments?

Yes, we do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. Because it is difficult to fill a canceled appointment without sufficient notice, appointments canceled without 24-hour notice will be charged a fee of $50. If you need to cancel your appointment please call or text us with at least 24 hours’ notice at 617-297-8549 or email

We offer a wide range of immunizations, including the immunizations you need to register for classes and those you need to travel. 

COVID-19 and Influenza Vaccines

Please visit Healthy @ Tufts for information about COVID-19 and influenza vaccines, including annual vaccine clinics.

Cost of Immunizations

Many major medical insurance policies reimburse for standard immunizations from your primary care physician but may not reimburse for vaccinations given at Health Service so it is important to check with your insurance company before getting a vaccine through us. Most insurances policies do not cover the cost of travel-related immunizations.

The cost of immunizations varies -- some are inexpensive and others are costly. Our business office can tell you how much the immunizations you need will cost.

If you decide to receive an immunization at Health Service, and you have private insurance the charge for the vaccine will be put on your tuition bill. Please note, student insurance covers the cost of most immunizations. Travel immunizations, tend to be excluded from most insurance plans. You may download your statement on the Patient Portal.

Immunization Accommodations and Waivers

  • Massachusetts law does not allow philosophical exemptions for immunizations.
  • All students living in a campus residence or other congregate housing are required to receive the meningococcal vaccine unless they sign a waiver or qualify for an exemption.  To request the meningococcal vaccine waiver, please complete the form provided here and submit to the Health Service Immunization Coordinator. 
  • Massachusetts students must provide documentation of immunization, according to school requirements, or submit a medical or religious accommodation. Medical accommodations come from the student’s primary healthcare provider or medical specialist and must document a contraindication — the reason why an individual cannot medically receive the vaccine. Medical accommodation requests will be reviewed by Health Service.  Religious accommodations are reviewed and approved by the Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO).  Students requesting religious accommodations must complete the OEO religious immunization accommodation form and email it to

Primary Care

We see students for a variety of reasons including routine care, same-day sick concerns, gynecological problems, sexual and reproductive healthcare, including gender-affirming care, and care after a sexual assault. We offer both in-person and telehealth visits by appointment, which can be scheduled using the patient portal or by calling during our regular business hours.
