  2. Wentworth will pay for any co-payments, co-insurance or deductibles due for the primary care services listed above after the student’s insurance plan has been billed. Students will not be responsible for co-payments, co-insurance or deductibles due for the primary care services.
  3. However co-payments, co-insurance or deductibles may be due for the specialty and diagnostic services listed above, as outlined in students’ insurance plans. Wentworth does not cover any part of specialty or diagnostic services for students.
  4. The insurance subscriber or policy holder (typically a parent or guardian) may receive, via mail, an “Explanation of Benefits” (EOB) document from the insurance company after a student’s visit. While EOBs do not include medical diagnoses, they may include codes for procedures and services rendered.
