3 STEPS TO A HEALTHY YOU

Go to your student health center.

Every campus has one. It’s convenient to get free healthy checkups and immunizations, primary care if you’re sick or mental health care.

Get a referral.
Need specialty care or surgery outside of student health services? Your student health clinician will issue a “referral” to okay this additional care.

Find the best care at the lowest cost.
Once you receive a referral, you can use any doctor outside SHS. You will pay your lowest fees by staying in the UC Family of medical centers, affiliated facilities and professional providers. Check out all of your in-network and out-of-network options before you decide.
