Thank you for your interest in a travel health visit at Central Michigan University Health Services. Travel health is available for students, faculty, staff, spouses and dependents who are at least 14 years of age. We recommend that you use the Travel Health Pre-Trip Planning Checklist to guide your preparation.
Please complete the Travel Health ProgLetter with Forms.docx and forward them to the Travel Health Clinic, Foust 200, as soon as possible (a minimum of 6-8 weeks prior to your travel/departure date is strongly recommended). The Travel Health nurse will review them and consult with a Health Services physician to develop a plan tailored to your specific needs. It is important to complete the forms as accurately and completely as you can. If you are planning to visit several countries, list them in the order that you will be visiting them. Please provide a valid phone number and the nurse will contact you to set up your travel health appointment.
Travel Health visits are limited in number and require significant preparation, so we ask that you notify us at least 24 hours in advance if you will be unable to keep your scheduled appointment. This will allow someone else to use the time slot. To cancel or reschedule, call the appointment desk at 774-5693. Please note that there is a $20 charge for failure to notify us in advance if you cannot keep your appointment.
Your visit will include a review of:
- your health history
- immunization record
- current health problems
- medications you are taking (including over the counter drugs and supplements)
- precautions specific to your health status
- travel health recommendations for the countries on your itinerary
The charge for a Travel Health visit is $45 and is not usually covered by health insurance plans.
Charges for immunizations and preventive medications are in addition to the consult. If a more complex assessment is required, including a physical exam by a clinician or laboratory testing, there will also be additional charges. These may be billed to your primary health insurance plan if they are a covered benefit. Again, preventive health care is not always covered by insurance. You are advised to check with your plan representative in advance of your appointment to determine your coverage.
Payment is not required on the date of service. Charges can be placed on your CMU account. You are responsible for payment of the total amount by the posted due date on your monthly statement. If you prefer to pay when you are seen, you may do so by cash, check, money order, credit card or bank debit card in our Business Office, Foust 202.
If you would like information regarding current travel health fees including immunization prices please contact the business office at 774-3059
