If labs or diagnostic imagining at the local hospital is needed, those charges will be billed to the provided insurance or a statement will be mailed to your home address.

Referral Service

Names and phone numbers of local physicians and specialists are available upon request. If you need to be seen by a specialist, Student Health staff can make this referral however some insurance companies require referrals from an in-network primary care provider.

Self-Help Center

Over-the-counter cold, pain, allergy, cramp, and indigestion medications are available without having to see the nurse.

Student Health Insurance

Students are strongly encouraged to have health insurance. Student Health requests that each student provide a copy of their insurance card with the Health History form. Most Centre students have health insurance through a parent’s plan. Under the Affordable Care Act, if a parent’s health insurance plan covers children, the parent can add or keep the child on their policy until they turn 26 years old. If a student is not covered through a parent’s plan, an individual plan should be purchased for them.
