The Health Center (TCHC), located in Wheaton Hall, provides health care for all Trinity students enrolled in at least 2 classes. The center is licensed by the state of Connecticut as an outpatient clinic and functions as a primary care office for students. Urgent and emergent care is referred off campus. The Center coordinates ongoing care with home providers and assists students finding off-campus specialists. TCHC uses a fee-for-service billing model, similar to your home physician’s office. There are charges for office visits, laboratory services and pharmacy items. Students MUST present an insurance ID card at all visits. If no card is available at the time of the visit TCHC will file a claim with the company you waived with during the Open Enrollment period over the summer and all unpaid charges will be applied to the student's account.
