Student Care On the Go

Student Care on the Go Health Care Plan Image

Sandhills Community College and FirstHealth have partnered to develop Student Care On the Go (SCOTG). This on-demand telehealth platform provides an easily accessible way for SCC students to address a range of healthcare concerns with licensed medical professionals 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year-round for 12 full months.

SCOTG offers a fast and familiar virtual way to connect with a medical professional for care by mobile app, web, or phone when you have a health issue. SCOTG medical providers can diagnose, treat, and prescribe medication for many conditions.

  • This plan is for SCC curriculum/college credit students only with no minimum credit hours required.
  • Opt-in enrollment will be available at the beginning of each semester (three times each academic year).
  • The annual cost of the plan is $120 and can be deducted from financial aid if/when applicable.
  • SCC will award five scholarships to cover the annual cost of the plan for the first five eligible applicants for the Spring 2023 enrollment period.
  • The plan is for basic, non-emergency medical conditions.
  • There is no co-pay for virtual visits.
  • One in-person primary care clinic visit per year is allowed with no co-pay.
  • Students will not lose access to SCOTG services during the year of enrollment regardless of status at SCC.
  • Providers are board-certified physicians or licensed medical professionals.
  • Most medical providers are based in the Sandhills region, and many of them work at FirstHealth Convenient Care and Primary Care clinics.
  • Providers are available within minutes of contact, and no appointment is needed.
