General F.A.Q.

Health Insurance

  • It is important that each student at Keene State College have health insurance for coverage of care not received in the Center for Health and Wellness. We encourage each student to be aware of his or her health insurance provider, coverage and limitations. It is of particular importance that students know about emergency care coverage, prescription coverage and limitations. Please come to college with an insurance card and phone numbers.

Athletics

  • If you are planning to participate in intercollegiate sports, a copy of your Comprehensive Student Health Report, which includes your physical and immunizations will need to be submitted to the Athletic Department.

Things to Bring

  • Don't forget your prescriptions, prescription information, items from the list below, and your insurance coverage provider information. Be sure you know who your medical insurance provider is, what numbers, forms, and procedures need to be followed to submit claims for medical expenses incurred outside of the KSC Center for Health and Wellness.

    Don't forget to bring…

    • non-aspirin pain reliever: acetaminophen and/or ibuprofen (ex: Tylenol, Advil, etc.)

Prescribing Medications for ADHD

  • Should you wish to use the Keene State College Center for Health and Wellness to prescribe your medication for ADHD (e.g. Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta), we require documentation of the diagnosis of ADHD that includes:
    • Records from the current prescribing practitioner with a request from them that we prescribe your medication.
    • Psychiatric/Psychological Interview (when available)
    • Other important information:
    • Students are seen once a month in follow up, and prescriptions are only given at office visits with a clinician.
    • Appointments can be made by calling the Center for Health and Wellness at 603-358-2450.
    • All documentation must be received before an initial appointment for a prescription can be made.
    • Visits to the Center for Health and Wellness are covered under the Student Health Fee. Should you wish to see another provider in our community, your insurance may have a list of covered providers.
    • There are also support services provided through the Counseling Services. Their number is 358-2437.
    • Another on-campus resource is the office of Disability Services. They can assist you in determining if you are eligible for services and accommodations based on a disability. That office may be reached at 358-2353.

    We at the Center for Health and Wellness wish to provide high quality care to all our students. We strive to provide service to those who benefit from stimulant medication in a conscientious and responsible manner.
