Q: Does the Student Health Center stay open over the summer?
A: Absolutely! We are here all summer to take care of your health care needs. In fact, we’re not so jam-packed over the summer since many students do leave campus, so it is a great time to take care of those routine visits you didn’t have time to get to during the school year: eye exams, dental cleanings, women’s annual exams (pap smears) or STI screenings. To schedule an appointment, just call our appointment desk at (614) 292-4321.
If you have Student Health Insurance, be sure to schedule your appointment before June 20, 2010 – that’s when your spring quarter coverage ends. If you want to keep your insurance coverage over the summer, be sure to purchase off-term summer coverage no later than June 20, 2010 at the Student Health Insurance website. Summer quarter coverage is in effect from 6/21/10 – 9/14/10.
If you get your health insurance through another company, be sure to contact them directly to confirm what type of coverage you have at the Student Health Center. We are happy to bill outside insurance companies, but for us to do that effectively you need to register your insurance with us. You can call (614-292-0113) or visit our Patient Relations Department on the 3rd floor of the Wilce Student Health Centerfor help with that.
Enjoy your summer!
