Student Health Services
The Office of Student Services currently partners with the Health and Wellness Center to provide medical services, behavioral health services and counseling services to students. Covered services are provided free of charge for students without health insurance. Costs will be charged to private insurance for students who have coverage.
All full-time EOSC students who are enrolled in the current semester are eligible for services. Proof of current enrollment is required. All students must present a valid EOSC ID before receiving services.
All appointments must be scheduled in advance through the Office of Student Services. This ensures that services will be covered for students without health insurance.
Appointments for specific clinical and behavioral health services are provided for eligible EOSC students via two options:
- In-person appointments: Scheduled at the Wilburton Health and Wellness Center located at 802 Hwy. 2 North.
- Virtual appointments: Telehealth services may be available for certain clinical and behavioral health appointments. The initial appointment must be scheduled and completed in the Office of Student Services. This appointment option allows students to use a designated computer to access web-based health care services while remaining on campus.
What is covered by Student Health Services?
- Treatment for minor illness and injuries.
- Referrals to health care providers, specialists, or community agencies.
- Basic office visits and physical exam visits (family practice physician and nurse practitioner).
- Lab tests and X-Rays/EKGs needed to assist in a diagnosis.
- Prenatal care and specialist visits (such as a surgeon, orthopedist, or ear/nose/throat) are not covered. In many cases, prenatal care will be covered by SoonerCare.
- Up to three counseling sessions for behavioral and mental health services.
If medication is necessary, a prescription will be written which can be filled at any local pharmacy. The Health and Wellness Center has a contractual agreement with Main Street Drug for the low-cost 340b prescription program. The student is responsible for payment.
Emergency services, those required for life-threatening conditions, are not provided by Student Health Services. For a medical emergency on campus, call 911 or the campus police at 918.448.2365.
Behavioral and Mental Health Services
The Health and Wellness Center provides behavioral and mental health services. EOSC students who are experiencing challenges in their lives have access to short-term counseling by a licensed mental health provider. The brief therapeutic model is directed at helping students succeed in the college environment. Eastern will provide up to three counseling sessions free of charge for students without health insurance. Costs will be charged to private insurance for students who have coverage.
Who is financially responsible?
- Students are financially responsible for all services received at The Health and Wellness Center that are not covered by Student Health Services.
- Students should familiarize themselves with which services are and are not covered.
- If the Health and Wellness Center is not within their insurance's provider network, it may benefit the student to seek care from another clinic within their network rather than incurring charges not covered by Student Health Services.
- EOSC does not provide any type of compensation for injuries that occur on campus. Each student and visitor is expected to have their own health insurance to cover personal medical costs.
What to bring?
- Valid EOSC Student ID (required)
- Completed Healthcare Eligibility Form (available in Student Services)
- Insurance Card (if student is covered)
The Student Services Office does not provide excuses for absences from class. Students are responsible for notifying instructors and arranging make-up work when absent due to illness. A student who is absent should notify the instructors by phone, email, or in person of the absence as soon as possible. Arrangements for make-up work, make-up exams, or possible assignment adjustments are entirely the responsibility of the student.
