You are not obligated to use Kinney Drugs, and can fill your prescriptions at the pharmacy of your choice. This is an option to be aware of.

Am I required to use Crouse Medical Practice as my health care provider?
ESF students are not required to use CMP. This is an option available to students if they are interested and if their insurance plan allows it. We remain happy with the partnership with CMP and the service to our students.

What is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA)?
The ACA requires all U.S. citizens and other permanent residents to have health insurance that meets a certain standard of care, or pay a tax penalty for going without insurance. The ACA requires insurance plans to cover pre-existing conditions and many preventative services, as well as essential health benefits such as emergency services, hospitalization, mental health and substance abuse disorders treatment, and more.
