Students should go to the emergency room at one of the provider hospitals if they are very, very sick (bad chest pain, difficulty breathing, broken bone, bad cut needing stitches.) If they go to the emergency room for a mild illness, the insurance company will not pay very much of the charges – leaving you to pay much or all. The insurance company will generally pay more of the charges at local urgent care clinics for mild illnesses than at the emergency room (e.g. Urgent Care at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital is ONLY FOR EMERGENCIES.)
We often make same day or next day appointments.
Students under the age of 18 must have a ‘Consent for Treatment of a Minor’ on file at UHS, in order for them to be treated. You can download the Consent form from our Forms page.
