Free After-Hours Advice Nurse: 800-466-0386
If Student Health Services is closed and you have a medical concern, you may contact the free after-hours nurse advice service. Call direct at 800-466-0386 or follow phone prompts from 703-993-2831. You can receive advice about your concern. The nurse can direct you to set up an appointment with Student Health Services or if you should seek immediate care. The after-hours nurse service is provided by Carenet Health not by the George Mason Student Health Services. Student Health Services is not responsible for the advice given by Carenet Health.
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 health insurance, check with your 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.aetnastudenthealth.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.
