  • If you have student health insurance through CHP, please be aware that it covers you year-round, wherever you are (with some restrictions based on whether you are seeing an “in-network” vs. “out-of-network” healthcare provider). If you need healthcare over FWT, you may search for a nearby “in-network” provider at, and simply present your CHP insurance card at the time of service. You may also find a policy brochure which describes the benefits and restrictions of the policy. The last two pages of the Policy Brochure describe how to access additional benefits that you are entitled to. This includes a 24/7 hotline to speak to a nurse, a teleconference with an emergency physician, as well as travel assistance and insurance.
  • Prescription refills: As a reminder, prescription refills may not be sent through the mail. Because Health and Psychological Services Offices are closed over FWT, all students should make sure to have their medication refills approved by their prescribing providers before the end of the term. Please be sure to have refills on prescriptions to cover you through FWT.
