We strive to empower students to be self-directed and well-informed, and to continually improve the standards of health care.

Do You Know if Your Health Insurance will Work at Stetson?
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. If you have questions, call Stetson Health Service at 386-822-8150 Monday-Friday 8a-12p and 1p-4:30p.
