Are you are interested in pursuing specialist care (Psychiatry, rheumatology, dermatology, sports medicine, MRI, etc.) beyond the health care services available at OSU Student Health Services?  While your insurance may not require a referral for coverage or reimbursement, many specialist offices may ask for a referral in order to schedule an appointment for you.

We are happy to assist with a referral to a community provider. Please contact SHS main line at 541-737-9355 (541-737-WELL) to schedule a visit (telehealth or in-person) with one of our providers to discuss your care and a referral.
