Central Arizona College students have health service options, including access to 24/7 telemedicine and counseling/therapy services for themselves and up to four household dependents, including a spouse and/or children, with WellVia.
Students and their dependents can speak to a provider by video chat or phone to discuss any illnesses or health concerns they may have within minutes of signing up.
WellVia, a national network of board-certified, state-licensed doctors, offer medical consultations 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. WellVia doctors can diagnose acute non-emergent medical conditions and will send a prescription to a pharmacy of the student’s choice at the end of the consult, if necessary.
A $35 fee will apply per consult and WellVia offers a discount prescription plan.
Dr. Tramaine Rausaw, CAC dean of student life, explains, “Within minutes, students can speak to a doctor over video chat or phone from the comfort of their own home, car or residence hall and get the acute medical attention necessary to stay in class and on track.”
Students receive an enrollment email the second week of classes to complete registration for themselves and family members. All students enrolled at CAC are eligible to use the service for themselves and the registered dependents.
In partnership with WellVia, CAC’s Student Government Association and the Student Health & Wellness Taskforce have made this health service access possible.
