Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that we receive and their answers:
I have not received my insurance ID card and documents, why not?
If you have not received your insurance documents, you will need to contact your sponsoring organization directly, as they are responsible for managing their health insurance enrollments. They will be able to assist you further and make sure you are enrolled for the full duration of your program.
Once you have been enrolled, you should receive a copy of your insurance ID card via email, and you can also access your policy documents through the MyDocuments section of your Student Zone. The link to your Student Zone will be included on your insurance ID card.

I need to see a doctor — what do I do?
If you aren’t feeling well and you need to visit a doctor, you will want to make sure you are following the right steps to make seeking treatment as easy as possible.
- Always make sure to bring a copy of your insurance ID card with you and present this at the time of your visit.
- For non-emergency conditions, your first choice for treatment should be telemedicine.
For more severe conditions or for in-person treatment, you will want to visit an Urgent Care Center, Walk-in Clinic, Doctor, or Hospital that is within your plan’s network. **Only use the Emergency Room (ER) in emergency situations, as your plan may include an additional ER deductible that you will have to pay if you seek treatment at the Emergency Room.
- After seeking treatment, you will want to make sure to file a claim with the insurance company.
To find providers in your area that will accept your plan, please visit the Doctor/Hospital Search section of your Student Zone or call the insurance company for assistance using the phone number on the back of your ID card. You can find the link to your Student Zone on your insurance ID card.
