If a student’s needs can be better met by another agency or treatment provider, he/she is referred out on a voluntary basis to that resource. We will work with you to help you find the best provider(s) and will strive to arrange that they are in your insurance plan.

Insurance Information

Students at the University may purchase the health insurance through the Johns Hopkins University student health insurance plan. Our provider, new for the 2014-15 academic year, is Consolidated Health Plans (CHP). The insurance carrier will be CIGNA.. In an arrangement with CHP, students who are insured by this plan may have their deductible reduced if they are referred out by the Counseling Center. Please speak with your counselor about this if you are receiving a referral. The Counseling Center will make every effort to provide all students who receive referrals with names of providers in their insurance plan, whether through CHP or another plan.

If you have the JHU insurance plan, you should speak with your Counseling Center Therapist, or the Clinical Case Manager to ask for an insurance referral authorization form to be completed. This form is from the Counseling Center to CHP, letting them know that we are sending you to a community provider. This will reduce your deductible from $250 to $75, allowing you to begin receiving insurance reimbursement sooner.
