New Postdoc Needs Immediate Medical Care

What if a postdoc’s appointment has started and they need immediate medical care, but they have not enrolled in postdoc health insurance?

The postdoc should get treatment at one of the options below and pay out of pocket (save receipts!). After enrollment, they work with their provider for reimbursement.
