Smiley’s Clinic – 612-333-0770
Augsburg College contracts with Smiley’s Clinic, a neighborhood family practice clinic, to provide a wide range of health care services year-round for uninsured Augsburg students. Smiley’s also accepts most insurances, and many of our students who have insurance use the clinic for their health concerns. Students with insurance should contact their insurance customer service number to confirm that Smiley’s Clinic is in their provider network.
Uninsured Augsburg students may see a family physician at Smiley’s Clinic for a $5 co-pay (on showing their Augsburg identification card). Some other services at Smiley’s (such as some labwork) are included in the Augsburg contract, others are not. Students using the Augsburg contract at Smiley’s should thoroughly read the contract below to familiarize themselves with what is, and is not, covered. Call CCHP if you have questions (612-330-1707).
