  • 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” health care provider). If you need health care over the Field Work Term, you can search for a nearby “in-network” provider at: www.chpstudent.com, and simply present your CHP insurance card at the time of service. Feel free to come to Health Services to pick up a policy brochure which describes the benefits and restrictions of the policy.
  • Prescription refills: As a reminder, prescription refills cannot 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.
