Student Health Care Over the Summer and After Mills

Health Care Over the Summer

The Vera Whole Health Center at Mills closes every summer. The last day of on-campus service is the day before Commencement and the first day of on-campus service is the Monday of New Student Orientation. 

Students who are covered under the Student Health Plan are members of Aetna, and may use their health insurance over the summer. To find out locations and resources, login to AetnaStudentHealth.com.

Students who are not members of Aetna and are insured through other plans should seek services from providers covered by their health insurance.  Search for physicians and facilities near you that may take your health insurance in the San Francisco Bay Area at Hill Physicians Group, Sutter Health Network or John Muir Health Network. For more assistance finding a provider, please contact the Manager of Wellness and Community Outreach before the end of June at 510.430.2260 or health@mills.edu.

If you receive emergency care, post-stabilization care, or out-of-area urgent care from a non–plan provider, you must pay the provider and file a claim for reimbursement unless the provider agrees to bill your insurance. 

Health Insurance Coverage After Mills

After leaving Mills College, students should purchase a new plan or sign up for government assisted medical coverage within 30 days. An individual or family plan may be purchased directly from Kaiser Permanente (by calling 1.800.853.8216 or go to Shop Plans) within 60 days of loss of coverage or enroll in a plan through a state or federal health benefits exchange, such as Covered California or the Federal Benefits Exchange. To learn more about options beyond the Student Health Plan, please review Health Insurance After Mills or contact the Manager of Wellness and Community Outreach at health@mills.edu

Medical Records Requests by Former Students: You may have had tests, vaccinations or screenings done at the Student Health Center or a nearby Kaiser Permanente facility while you were a student at Mills College. If you lost the results provided to you by Kaiser Permanente clinicians or support staff at the Student Health Center, you have several options to obtain duplicate information:

1) If you are still a Member of Kaiser Permanente (KP), you can find most information in your online medical record. You will not find x-ray results or TB screening results there, but you will find most lab test results. Register online at KP.org and then go to "My Medical Record." You may print out or print to PDF or print screen shots of your results. Or you may continue to be a KP member, in which case, you can retrieve them online any time and have no need to print them out. If you need a copy of medical records that are NOT online (including TB Screening result that is handed to you in the form of a card at the Health Center), then see number 2 below.

2) If you did not choose to purchase one of the Kaiser Permanente (KP) Student Health Plans through Mills College, you would still have been issued a temporary medical record number to be seen at the Student health Center. If you need a copy of a screening such as TB screening result or other proof of immunization, you may stop by the Vera Whole Health Center at CPM 117 during the academic year. Or please send an email request for records including this information: Your KP temporary Medical Record Number, your full name, your date of birth, your Mills Student ID, your address and the approximate date of the screening or vaccination to health@mills.edu
