Why is non-emergency coverage in Colorado important?

Students often need to access healthcare while in Colorado, and we want to ensure that all of our students have equal access to appropriate healthcare without incurring large medical bills.  Simple health issues can snowball and make it difficult for students to finish a given block, so we encourage students to be proactive in seeking medical evaluation if they are feeling unwell.  With our active student population, we also see a lot of students who require ongoing treatments like physical therapy for injuries, or ongoing mental health treatments.  While students are able to engage in such therapies while on the block plan, these treatments can be expensive without insurance coverage.  Average costs for physical therapy are approximately $100/session.  Average costs for psychotherapy off campus are between $80 and $120/session.  Additionally, we encourage any sexually active student to receive appropriate reproductive healthcare, such as well-person check-ups, contraception evaluations, and testing for sexually transmitted infections.  Many young adults are not comfortable talking with their parents about these issues.  Costs for testing for sexually transmitted infections can be as high at $800. Costs for contraception can also be high.  Many students opt for hormone injections like Depo-Provera, which must be administered every 3 months in a doctor's office, can cost as much as $460/year.
