Student Health Services
Clarkson College, in partnership with Clarkson Family Medicine, offers Student Health Services for enrolled Clarkson College students. Provided the proper procedures are followed, Clarkson College will cover the cost of your insurance co-pay or out of network office visit. This service is intended to provide students with access to acute health care services in a convenient manner and location. Acute health care services do not include additional lab tests, procedures or X-rays. These types of additional services will be the financial responsibility of the student and/or their parents.
To follow the proper procedures:
- Call Clarkson Family Medicine at 402.552.3222. They will make every effort to see students on a same day basis. Office hours are 8 a.m.–5 p.m. To reach a physician after hours or on weekends, call 402.552.3222. Your call will be referred to a physician on call.
- Before leaving for your appointment, be sure to have your insurance card with you. If you do not have your insurance card, you will be responsible for all expenses incurred during your appointment; otherwise, you will need to reschedule for a time when you can present your insurance card.
- Go to Clarkson Family Medicine at your scheduled appointment time. It is located at 4200 Douglas Street, on the west side of 42nd Street, across from Clarkson College.
- Present your insurance card and fill out any patient information that is required. Following these steps, a physician will see you.
- After your appointment, Clarkson Family Medicine will automatically bill your insurance company for the portion of the visit that your insurance company will cover. Clarkson Family Medicine will automatically bill Clarkson College for the co-pay or out of network expense for your office visit.
