Beginning in the 2013-14 academic year, Capital will no longer require students to purchase insurance, and will no longer offer third-party health insurance through the University. » Learn more in a letter from the Director of University Counseling and Health Services.
We do not write "doctor's notes" for class or examinations. Why? Because if you become ill on a Tuesday and miss classes, but don't come to see us until Thursday when you feel better, we cannot verify that you were sick at all.When you miss class or exams because of a visit to the center, we will ask you to fill out a Release of Information. Then, you will be asked to inform your instructor that you missed class or an exam because you were being seen here. The instructor may verify this by calling the CHW. The only exceptions to this are notes for work.
Students age 18 and older have a legal right to receive confidential services at the Center for Health and Wellness. Therefore, students must sign a Release of Confidential Information form if they would like anybody outside of the CHW (including their parents) to receive information about their health care (with exception for a health emergency). We comply with the Family Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA).
Students age 17 and younger cannot receive medical or counseling services unless their parent/legal guardian signs a Consent to Treatment form.
If you would like copies of the Release of Confidential Information or Consent to Treatment sent or faxed to you, please contact us.
Parents, if you have any concerns about your student’s well-being, we encourage you to contact the CHW, the Dean of Students office (614-236-6611), Residential and Commuter Life (614-236-6137), or Public Safety (614-236-6666).
