Is Your Insurance Accepted at Stetson Health Service?
To be sure, call the Member Customer Service phone number on the back of your insurance card. Ask them if services at Stetson Health Service will be covered and/or if Dr. Rainer Chan is in your plan. If you have an "HMO" (Health Maintenance Organization) type insurance, ask if they have a special exception you can set up for college students going out of area. If not, see if you can switch the primary care provider to Dr. Rainer Chan, otherwise you will need an authorization from your primary care provider each time you make an appointment with Stetson Health Service.
