Who can be a patient of the CHS Health Center?

Anyone who is a CHS student.

What if the student already has a doctor?

We don't replace doctors. We will work with providers to ensure appropriate care.

How much does it cost?

We will bill the insurance company if the student has it. If the student does not have insurance, then we will help them apply for it. There is also a waiver for students without insurance to cover costs.
