For UCSC students who are away from campus, or after hours and weekends when the UCSC Student Health Center is closed, Live Health Online is another option to consider. UCSC Students can have an online appointment on a computer or mobile device with a covered Anthem Blue Cross doctor, counselor or psychiatrist for the same low copay you would pay for any in-network outside provider.
