Students can receive fast care with MATC/Froedtert partnership

The District Student Senate has approved funding for a new initiative between MATC and Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin that covers walk-in care treatment for currently enrolled students, both part time and full time. Students can receive treatment for non-emergent illnesses and injuries such as the common cold, the flu, pink eye or sprains. These are a sampling of the extended list of services that the FastCare locations can treat. Archie Graham, director of Student Life, explains, “Students sometimes have to make difficult decisions regarding addressing their health care needs, so MATC looked at creating an opportunity to help  a student take care of a basic need.” 

See the blue box for answers to some important questions regarding the FastCare walk-in treatment program.

Is the Froedtert FastCare Program insurance?

Not exactly. Most medical insurances cover medical, surgical and prescription costs and services rendered by medical professionals on behalf of the insured for a cost. The FastCare program covers acute walk-in treatment care for a specific set of illnesses, injuries and lab tests only available to students at certain locations.

Allergies – Common Cold – Ear Infections – Headaches – Minor Burns – Pink Eye – Physicals – Rashes – Sore Throat – Sunburn – Swimmer’s Ear – Bladder Infections – Influenza – Impetigo – Insect Bites – Laryngitis – Aches/Strains – Upper Respiratory Infections – Mononucleosis

What lab tests can be administered at the clinic?

Are there any out-of-pocket costs?

All eligible part-time and full-time students can utilize the FastCare walk-in treatment services with no out-of-pocket costs as the program is funded from student activity fees paid during class enrollment. Students are responsible for fees for additional medical services such as prescriptions.

Do I need to schedule an appointment? What do I need to take with me?

No appointment is necessary during clinic hours. All treatment is provided on a walk-in basis. All you need is your MATC student identification card to receive services.
