Health Care & Insurance

Health Insurance

We strongly encourage all students to carefully consider their health care options.  Visit healthcare.gov for the Health Insurance Market Place to find coverage that meets your needs and budget. 

Please note that all international students attending Cameron are required to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan through Academic Health Plans.  For information about this requirement or to request a waiver, please contact Clara Lundgren at 591-8019.

Student Wellness Center

The Student Wellness Center, located on the first floor of North Shepler, offers both acute medical care and mental health counseling for students at no charge.  Contact the Student Wellness Center at 581-6725 if you are experiencing a medical condition that is interfering with your ability to attend class or a mental health condition that is interfering with your functioning in daily life. 

Counseling services are available to students enrolled in at least six hours and health care is available to all students enrolled on the Lawton campus.

Counseling

Two licensed counselors are available to students enrolled in at least 6 credit hours during the fall and spring semesters or 3 hours in the summer. The counselors will meet with you to confidentially discuss your concerns and may be able to refer you to on or off campus resources that can help you to develop skills needed to decrease the current level of distress in order to be more successful.

Health Care

The university offers acute medical care through the Student Wellness Center, located on the 1st floor of North Shepler. Care is available for students enrolled on the Lawton campus.

Additionally, through a partnership with the Southwest Oklahoma Family Medicine Clinic, full-time students with a valid ID are able to receive discounted health services. Eligibility for student discounts shall be limited to full-time Cameron students only and shall not apply to charges incurred by dependents of Cameron students.

 

Students are encouraged to seek medical attention at the Student Wellness Center or the Southwest Oklahoma Family Medicine Clinic for minor injuries and illnesses. Please use the Comanche County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) emergency room only for bona fide emergencies or for minor injuries and illnesses which require treatment during times when the other medical centers are closed.

 

The Southwest Oklahoma Family Medicine Clinic is located at 1202 NW Arlington and can be contacted at (580) 248-2288. CCMH is located immediately north of the Cameron University campus.
