VCOM College Catalog and Student Handbook

• Co-Pay: Students should seek no higher than 30% co-pay with insurance covering at least 70% up to $5,000 maximum and 100% payment by insurance after $5,000 is met. Students are responsible for their own personal health costs and insurance coverage if not under the VCOM medical insurance policy. Health Services VCOM assures access to health services that includes diagnostic, preventive, and therapeutic health services. These are available to students through agreements with local primary care health providers. VCOM also assures that students have access to emergency services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year within the community where the campus is located or in the communities of our core hospital sites. Health services are confidential. OMS 1 and OMS 2 students are provided with information regarding these services at orientation each year. The information for eligible providers is also provided to OMS 3 and OMS 4 students by the DSME and Site Coordinator for each core site. Provider information can also be found on the VCOM website. Health professionals providing health services to students, through a physician-patient relationship, must recuse him/herself from the academic assessment or promotion of the student receiving those services. While the faculty at VCOM abide by the rule, students should not engage healthcare providers who are involved in their academic assessment or promotion to assure this does not unknowingly occur. VCOM OMS 3 and OMS 4 students may participate in rotations with healthcare providers that offer healthcare services to other VCOM students. In this case, OMS 3 and OMS 4 students may not participate in another student’s healthcare and may not view another student’s health record. In addition, if any student being treated identifies that an OMS 3 or OMS 4 student is present in the room, he or she should request the student not be involved in their care, informing the student and the physician providing the care. As the VCOM clinical training sites (physician or student) may not identify the patient as a VCOM student, it is an expectation that students seeking healthcare services in these sites identify themselves as a VCOM student.
