Seeking Medical Treatment

Free medical consultation is available to students at Walsh University. Health Services is located in the Cecchini Physical Education building, and a nurse or doctor will be there to assist you during the normal operating hours. This should be your first stop exempt in an emergency!  If you need additional medical consultation, please check with your insurance company to be sure the office or hospital you are visiting will be covered by your insurance plan. You must also complete a claim form and submit it to GeoBlue Insurance to ensure payment.

To find another doctor, ask your friends and colleagues for a referral, and then check with the doctor to see if they are accepting new patients. If not, keep asking and searching to find a reputable doctor that you feel comfortable with.

Discounted Services

Nonimmigrant students are not eligible for medical benefits through the U.S. government, such as Medicare or Medicaid. If a doctor or hospital is offering discounted or "sliding scale" fees based on your income, it is your responsibility to ask if it is a government-funded program. If so, you are not eligible. If you have questions, contact the Director of International Student Services.

Medical Emergencies

In the event of a medical emergency, call 9-1-1 and tell the operator your situation. Don’t forget to tell the operator your address and phone number. The operator can send an ambulance if needed or give you advice about what to do next. If you are able to drive yourself or have a friend drive you, go to the emergency room of the hospital or an urgent care center. In the emergency room, you may need to wait for hours, as major injuries are treated before smaller ones.
