insuranceManaged care plans typically require that students be seen in their facilities, or by a participating provider, and may not pay for services received at the Health Center.

The managed care plan may agree to pay for Health Center services if the visit is approved in advance. Try contacting your primary care provider to receive advance approval for coverage of services at the Health Center, or contact the benefits manager at the parent's place of employment to inquire about the plan's off site coverage provisions.
