  • Contacting their insurance to see if the medical specialist or health facility is participating with their health insurance company.
  • Bringing copies of their health insurance cards to their appointment as well as personal identification (such as, UNI ID or driver’s license).

Fees charged by a specialist are independent of the Student Health Clinic.  If you have specific questions related to the cost of the visit, you should check with your health insurance company.
