- Contact your insurance company to see if your policy covers services.

- Submit a claim to your insurance company following a visit. The Center for Health & Wellbeing, including Student Health Services and Counseling and Psychiatry Services, is not a participating provider for any outside insurance plan and does not bill insurance companies directly.
