Important Insurance Tip
Avoid going to the Emergency Room (ER) at the hospital unless you have a serious life threatening emergency. Your student insurance will not cover the high cost of an ER visit. It's best to use a walk in clinic like the various Multi-Care clinics during daytime, even for broken bones and other non-life threatening emergencies. Come into the office if you have questions and/or want to pick up a list of nearby clinics.
