In the event of illness, you may receive care at Student Health Services but they are only considered “in-network” by Blue Cross, Aetna, and Cigna.  If you have any other insurance carrier, in case of illness you may also receive care at an Urgent Care facility in the area. Please be sure to bring your insurance card with you.
