Free After-Hours Advice Nurse: 1-866-847-5338
If Student Health Services is closed and you have a medical concern, you may contact the free after-hours nurse advice line. You can receive advice about your concern, and the nurse can direct you to set up an appointment with Student Health or go seek immediate care. The after-hours nurse service is provided by Optum not by the George Mason Student Health Services. Student Health Services is not responsible for the advice given by Optum.
You may also contact your primary care physician, urgent care facility, walk-in health clinic, an emergency room, or call 911.
Local Urgent Care Resources
Several local Urgent Care Centers and Emergency Rooms are listed below. An urgent care center may be a good resource for non-immediate or non-life threatening concerns when Student Health is closed. Remember to check the facility’s hours of operation.
If you have insurance, check with your health insurance provider for information about costs or co-pays associated with emergency room admission or care. For a current list of urgent care facilities which accept the university Student Health Insurance use the Find Providers search tool on their website: www.uhcsr.com/gmu.
To avoid the the Student Health Insurance Plan Emergency Room co-pay, look for an Urgent Care that is NOT a full-service emergency room.
