Location: Foust 200
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 TRAVELPACKET.pdf 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 989- 774-6599.
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
Billing of Services
The Travel Health Visit includes a brief visit with one of our physicians, a review of your itinerary, personal health history, immunization status and development of recommendations specific to your needs.
An office visit charge, along with immunization charges, (if any), will be billed:
- Directly to the patient (self pay); or B. to patient’s insurance
Patients who choose Option A, the self-pay option, may qualify for a 30% discount.
Please let staff know how you would like visit charges billed at time of appointment check-in.
Once/if insurance is billed, the 30% discount cannot be applied.
Important: Please note, some health insurance plans do not cover preventive services, including immunizations for any reason including travel. It is patient’s responsibility to contact their insurance company with questions about coverage for this and any other service. The patient is responsible for all visit charges. Your office visit will be billed to insurance 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.
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 989-774-6599, option 4.
