FAQ Accessing Health Care on my health care plan

  • How do I access physical health care services on my health care plan? 


  • How do I access mental health care services? 

Behavioral health issues can affect your life just as significantly as a physical illness or an injury.  Your emotional wellness is important. 

You are encouraged to contact OASC for referral information.

  • What if I would like I like to use services that are not available on the Montefiore Panel of Behavioral Health Providers? 

Please feel free to come to OASC for referral information.  You also have the option to chose from three counseling clinics in the neighborhood.  These clinics counseling offer services for Einstein students and the community at large.  For more resources, click on "Helplines and Hotlines" for a list of mental health resources, i.e, helplines, support groups, and information.
