In some medical emergencies and/or hospital visits it will be necessary for students to pay first for medical care. We strongly recommend that students are provided with the ability to pay for these circumstances by either having money available to them, or a credit card to pay for such emergencies.

​If you need to see a doctor or go to a hospital, you must contact the emergency assistance number immediately. When calling this number you will talk to a representative who can ensure that you get the right treatment, right away, and can help you with handling claims. The service is available in multi languages.
