Though Concordia does not offer any clinical services on campus, Health Services is available to guide students with their healthcare needs. The Fargo-Moorhead community has many high-quality providers available to our students. Health Services can help students navigate the healthcare system by connecting them to the appropriate community resources, assisting with insurance, and helping them meet their health and wellness goals.

The Health Services coordinator will discuss your individual needs and the services you are looking for, as well as your knowledge and comfort accessing care independently.

If you wish to set up a clinic appointment, the health services coordinator will help you:

  • Discuss insurance
  • Call the insurance company to find an in-network provider
  • Discuss options for care in the community
  • Choose the provider that meets your needs
  • Set up an appointment
  • Make appropriate referrals

You can discuss potential barriers to care and additional support and community resources.

Yes. The Health Services coordinator is a confidential resource on campus. No information will be disclosed to anyone else without your permission and consent. If you would like the Health Services coordinator to collaborate with another person or agency, you fill out a release of information.

We want to make sure transportation is not a barrier to you getting the healthcare you need. If you're in a situation where you don't have transportation to your appointment, contact the Health Services coordinator and we'll assist you with the resources you can use to get to and from your appointment.

The Health Services Office does not store or dispense medications but will help you with the community resources you can use if you require assistance with medication.

Basic health supplies such as over-the-counter medication and bandages are available for purchase on campus at the Korn Krib and Cobber Bookstore. There are also several pharmacies located very close to campus. Walgreen's is the closest pharmacy and is located a few blocks away.

  • Check with your health insurance company to verify which providers in Fargo-Moorhead are participating providers for your plan.
  • Students should bring health insurance information and/or a health insurance card with them to college in case they need to access medical services in Fargo-Moorhead.
  • If you already know you will need regular medical care {e.g., allergy shots, managing chronic condition that requires regular appointments}, it is important to establish a provider ahead of time since setting up care may take some time in a new system. 
  • Put together a medical/first aid kit with OTC medications you may need for common illness, pain, or injury, a thermometer, bandages, tissues, and any other things that are standard first aid in your home.
