Access to Health Care Services When Closed

Off–campus health care services are available to you when we are closed.

As always, if you experience a medical emergency dial 911, or go to the nearest emergency department.

For an urgent problem after hours (weekends, holidays) call 617-754-9600, Healthcare Associates (HCA) at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC). Follow the prompts for paging the doctor on call. Tell the doctor you are a student at NEC and that Leah McKinnon-Howe is the Health Services nurse practitioner and HCA contact. If you do not receive a return call within 30 minutes, please call again.

For students with Gallagher Student Health Insurance: when the health center is closed you may seek medical services anywhere without a referral. Services (minus the visit co-pay) are generally covered at 90% for all network providers and at 70% for all non-network providers. Please check with Gallagher at 1-800-404-9036 before your appointment if you have any questions regarding your insurance coverage.
