You are not alone and we are here to help.

Understanding medical and mental health care can be tough. Find information below that can be helpful in building your knowledge around medical and insurance terms and how to find a medical or mental health provider in your insurance network. If you don’t have insurance, or if you may soon age out of your parent’s or guardian’s insurance, you can apply for Medicaid by following the link below. As a reminder, while you are a student at Carthage, the Health and Counseling Center provides FREE services to you! 

HCC does not provide ADHD testing or assessment services. If you would like to be assessed it would be most helpful to discuss this with your primary care provider or seek other specialists in the community.
