Nurse practitioner appointments and billing
A nurse practitioner from the Beloit Health System sees students for appointments on campus, Monday through Thursday. Call the Health Center to schedule an appointment. The campus nurse is also available to see students on weekdays by appointment or walk-ins when possible.
The Health Center can also assist with setting up appointments with off-campus medical personnel/specialists. You can see the Health Center Registered Nurse for free.
Nurse practitioner visits—on or off campus—will be billed to you and/or your insurance. If you plan to see the nurse practitioner, check to see if your insurance has an in-network relationship with Beloit Health System. All visits with the nurse practitioner will be billed to your insurance by Beloit Health System.
On-campus counseling offers free counseling visits for all students. Long-term or chronic mental health needs will be referred to off-campus mental health providers, as appropriate. Counseling is located in the Health and Wellness Center and appointments are made by contacting the Health and Wellness Center.
