Students should bring their Colby Card and insurance card to every visit at MaineGeneral College Health. Upon arrival on their first visit, students may be asked to complete personal health history paperwork.
MaineGeneral hosts a patient portal called FollowMyHealth, and patients are urged to register. For more information, visit FollowMyHealth® Patient Portal.
Be sure to print, fill out, and bring the disclosure authorization form with you to your first visit. And if applicable to you, fill out the copay subsidy form to ensure your copays are covered by the College.
Our staff can assist your student with their ongoing ADD/ADHD medication with a letter from prescribing physician containing the following information:
The health center must have this documentation on record prior to making an appointment with a provider. Please be sure to allow enough time to avoid a lapse in medication management.
Colby College will pay up to $45.00 per copay per visit for students who have provided their copay information via the Student Health Insurance Copay Subsidy Request form. Any remaining amount owed will be billed directly to the student.
Co-insurance billing is not covered under Colby’s copay process. Co-insurance amounts are billed directly to the student.
If students have insurance through their family’s policy, they must let the insurance provider know they are a student at Colby College and work with them to determine how to handle their insurance claims while in Maine.
MaineGeneral College Health, like most healthcare clinics, will be unable to process student claims, handle their bills, or answer any questions about their individual policy — students must work with their health insurance company directly. If a student’s policy will not cover their care at MaineGeneral College Health, students are required to find a plan that supports their medical care at Colby. Students may also consider the Colby Student Health Insurance Plan.
For billing questions, please call MaineGeneral College Health at 207-861-6860 during
Monday – Friday
8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m
To authorize the release of health information, a patient must sign the Release of Information form.
