Student Health Care
Augustana College has established a relationship with the Trinity Medical Center and its subsidiary, the ExpressCare Clinic, located 1 mile from campus, to provide around-the-clock health care to its students. Students must provide proof of insurance or pay for services rendered with cash, check or credit card at the time they receive treatment. Student loans are available in the Dean of Students Ofﬁce, if needed.
Any student who chooses not to use ExpressCare may seek to become a patient of a local physician. Augustana is conveniently located near major medical facilities which provide emergency, inpatient and outpatient services. A free shuttle is available from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday to transport students to the health care provider of their choice, anywhere within the Quad Cities. The shuttle also transports students between residence halls and classes when needed. When the shuttle is not available, a local taxi service transports students free of charge.
Augustana operates a counseling service for its students. The Dean of Students can assist students in obtaining appropriate care.
An optional health insurance plan is available at a minimal annual premium. The plan is designed to supplement regular coverage. Information concerning the health insurance plan is available from the Dean of Students.
