Student Health Center medical clinicians refer students to health care professionals in the community as needed for specialty care. The Student Health Center maintains a list of frequently utilized specialty providers in the area and can assist students with the appointment process.
Students with insurance through the RIT plan should:
- Review the specifics of coverage
- Bring an insurance claim form to every visit.
- Contact the insurance company or meet with the on campus representative if there are questions (see Insurance information)
- Be aware that RIT insurance may not cover 100% of the cost of the visit and students are responsible for the difference
Students with non-RIT insurance should:
- Check the insurance policy to confirm that there is coverage for the Rochester area (this may be considered "out of network" if the home area is outside of Rochester)
- Check to be sure you may be referred by a SHC clinician (or if you must be referred by your primary medical provider at home)
- Review insurance plan website to identify specialist providers in Rochester area who are covered by their plan
