As of August 7, 2016, each student has the responsibility to set up his/her own insurance. You have a choice in the insurance you buy and this will likely save you money. Cameron University employees are not permitted to provide students with advice regarding the selection or purchase of individual health insurance. Health insurance provider information is provided as a courtesy and such provision in no way constitutes an endorsement or sanction of services provided by any insurance company.
