Current Students

              Please make sure you have a copy of your insurance card and know the primary insurance holder’s date of birth for                    every visit.

              Please make sure you have already changed your Primary Care Physician (PCP) to Dr. James McDonald, our                              Medical Director.

              If you fail to have a copy of the insurance card and have Dr. McDonald as your PCP, your visit will be billed to your                       Student Business account.

              It will take about 2 to 3 weeks before it will appear on your account and you will have 10 days to pay the amount.
