The Champlain-Bishop’s Health Service is located in the new Sports and Wellness center and offers health care to all students who have paid the student services fee. Staff and faculty may use the service for a small fee. The staff at Health Services will do everything possible to treat illnesses and injuries quickly so that class absences will be kept to a minimum.
The staff includes nurses, a two part-time physicians and a secretary who are available Monday through Friday. Students wishing to see the nurse will be seen in order of arrival. To see the doctor, it is recommended that you make an appointment. Emergency situations will always have priority.
Records are strictly confidential. No information is released, for any reason, without the student’s consent.
Health Services are supported by student fees, therefore, there is no charge to use the service. However, the doctor’s services and the cost of any tests required are paid by health insurance or provincial medicare plans.
Quebec students who do not have their Medicare cards, or who present cards that have expired, will be required to pay the full cost of services immediately.
Canadian students from another province are fully covered by their provincial medicare plans provided they:
- inform the Ministry of Health in their home province that they are studying in Quebec before they leave home;
- have their Provincial Medicare card with them when they come to see the doctor. If the card is unavailable or has expired, the full cost of services must be paid immediately.
