For care beyond the scope of the Student Health Service or when the Student Health Center is closed, there are several extended-hour health clinics and one hospital within two miles of campus. The cost of service at these off-campus facilities is the responsibility of the student. Therefore, it is important that all students have health insurance that provides coverage in the Chico area.
