Lafene Health Center will participate in the 2023 Benefits Fair Wednesday, Oct. 4, and is offering additional services at this year's event.

As at previous fairs, Lafene will offer the influenza vaccine and a skin cancer screening. Appointments are required and can be made on the myLAFENE+ patient portal or by calling 785-532-6544. Walk-ins may be accepted. Please bring your insurance card and K-State ID to the event. Before the fair, please log in to the patient portal, go to Medical Clearances, and complete the online Insurance Information Form, Non-Student Privacy Practice Notice, and the Treatment Agreement, if not already compliant. Go to Insurance Card and upload the front and back of your insurance card. You will be asked to complete a consent form on the day of your vaccination.

The cost of the flu vaccine is $27 for faculty and staff and is covered by most insurance companies. Lafene will submit insurance claims on your behalf; however, Lafene is not part of the Medicaid or Medicare networks and will not file insurance claims to those entities.

Rosanne Kreller, Lafene's certified dermatology nurse practitioner, will provide the skin cancer screenings. Kreller will examine exposed skin areas, note findings and make recommendations for next steps if needed. The screenings will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. This service will be provided at no charge at the Benefits Fair only.

Other services offered by Lafene at this year's Benefits Fair for no charge are 10-minute chair massages, breast exam education and the opportunity to speak with one of Lafene's physical therapists.

If you can't attend the Benefits Fair but would like to receive an influenza vaccine at Lafene Health Center, schedule your appointment on the myLAFENE+ patient portal or call 785-532-6544. You can also schedule a skin cancer screening on the portal or by calling Lafene Health Center.

The Benefits Fair will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4, in the Grand Ballroom at the K-State Student Union.
