Student Health Insurance Referral Policy

If you're covered by the AU Student Health Insurance Plan, the SHC is your primary care provider and first stop for health care needs. At the Center, our professional staff can take care of most routine internal medicine and GYN issues, including annual GYN exams and physicals. For specialty care, diagnostic testing, or therapeutic services, we will refer you out as needed.

Referrals are not required for speciality care, but if you have a question about what type of provider you may need to visit, you can schedule an appointment with the health center.

If you have questions about your health insurance benefits, it is a good idea to speak with CareFirst by calling 1-844-898-3332 prior to receiving treatment. Information can also be found online by visiting the CareFirst web site.
