What do I do if I need to go to the doctor?
If you need to see a doctor:
1. Go to the Campus Health Center
2. If the Health Center cannot treat you or is closed, go to one of the urgent care centers listed below. Please note that use of an urgent care center instead of a hospital emergency room may decrease your out-of-pocket expenses. You may also refer to the student insurance website to search for an individual doctor.
If you have specific questions about your insurance you can contact the insurance company directly at 1-800-367-5830 or visit their website. To view insurance plan details, view this brochure.

If you are NOT enrolled in any class at SBCC during the summer sessions, you must submit an application and payment to the health insurance company directly. Inquire at the ISSP Office for the application and payment information.
