*Augustana Convenient Care services will include the examination and consultation of sprains, strains, fevers, cold and flu, pneumonia, minor fractures, lacerations and other acute problems. Costs for medication, additional tests, or services requiring the student to see a provider off-campus would be handled through the student’s insurance.

Student insurance

All students automatically will be enrolled in the school-sponsored insurance plan through Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk. The Augustana student insurance plan is fully compliant with the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, resulting in a benefit-rich plan with low deductibles and co-pays which cover both in-patient and out-patient care. Students have the option of opting out of this coverage if they maintain comparable primary health insurance coverage through a family employee plan or private insurer.
