The Health Center can provide information about appropriate referrals if you need services beyond what can be provided by the nurses.
We do not provide health insurance, however, we have information available upon request. What the student health fee does cover is the premium for accident insurance provided to all COS students injured while participating in a COS sponsored event (including classes).
The Health Center does not provide absence notes to instructors. We can, however, provide proof that you have been to see a nurse in the Health Center.
If you qualify for the services offered by Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, you may qualify for a physical examination in connection with your contraceptive care.
We have a nurse practitioner who works with us on a limited, appointment only basis. Come in to see the college nurse and she will determine if you require a visit with our nurse practitioner. If a prescription is determined necessary for an acute, intermittent illness, he can provide one. The nurse practitioner provides services in the Visalia campus Student Health Center, upon referral from the college nurse.
