Community college students in Wayne County, Michigan, now have virtual access to healthcare included in their tuition. Wayne County Community College District (WCCCD) will be supplementing its campus support services and behavioral health services with SwiftMD's platform for students enrolled at any of the district's campuses or online classes. The service is available now to students currently enrolled at WCCCD and their dependents. 

SwiftMD is a state-of-the-art platform that provides virtual access to U.S.-trained board-certified physicians and master-level therapists via computer, phone, and smartphone app. WCCCD students and their dependents will be able to utilize the service immediately for general medical care as well as behavioral health care. SwiftMD's customized solutions have been implemented to work in tandem with WCCCD's student support services. 

"The missions of SwiftMD and community colleges are well-aligned with regard to providing high-quality resources that are accessible and affordable," said John Lawlor, SwiftMD's president and CEO. "We are proud to work with Chancellor Ivery to ensure that, regardless of where or when it is needed, Wayne County Community College District's students and their families have access to high-quality medical and behavioral health care."

"We must eliminate all barriers to success for our students and access to healthcare is a challenge for many students and families," said WCCCD chancellor Dr. Curtis L. Ivery. "By supplementing our campus support services with SwiftMD's virtual visits, we will greatly expand access for students and their dependents, so they are not forced to choose between healthcare, including behavioral health care, and their education.

SwiftMD's online medical appointments will allow students to eliminate costly urgent care visits to address general medical needs and are available around the clock. Through the SwiftMD platform, students will have access to U.S.-trained physicians, where they can book virtual appointments for non-emergency medical care, and receive diagnoses, treatment options and prescriptions sent to their preferred pharmacy.
