School Health Centers

When you’re at home, your parents usually have some kind of health insurance provided that they are employed. Even if they don’t they can still take you to an emergency room if not the local doctor. At school though your parents aren’t there to take you places for all your little problems. But there is a place to go at school for whatever ails you: the health center. But what’s it like and who’s actually there?
Hospitals are often big and really intimidating if you’re going there for any reason while small private practice doctors’ offices are usually made to be as comfortable as humanly possible. But the health center doesn’t really have the feel of these places. You have to take into account that it is operated by the school and the building is often no different than one you would have classes in. It feels somewhere in between the hospital and doctor’s office. While it isn’t as big or bad as a hospital, there is no cozy feeling. It feels more like an office building, though things are beginning to change as these places become more modernized.

So are there just university employees there too since it’s a university building to refer you to actual doctors? No, there are in fact licensed medical professionals at these places that can diagnose and refer you to specialists. These places are usually not different at all in terms of function from typical private doctor’s offices. You make an appointment over the phone, wait a couple days and then just go in and fill out the necessary paperwork. It’s really not very different at all. But how can a college student pay for this?

These services are paid through your student fees paid before each semester to the school. Along with pretty much every service you can imagine at college, there is no way to not have health insurance. Just to be a member of the school, usually you have to pay for at least partial coverage from the school.

Don’t be afraid of the school health centers since they are really no different from what you’re used to at home.
