Student Health Insurance Plan

LMU requires all full-time undergraduate, graduate and law students enrolled in seven credit hours or more to have health insurance that covers surgery, hospitalization, specialty medical care, or other services outside the scope of SHS.

The LMU-endorsed Student Health Insurance Plan, provided by Aetna, provides this kind of coverage for both accident and/or sickness. All full-time students are automatically enrolled in this plan.

Where Can I Go for Service?

When you need care, consider Student Health Services as your first stop. They can provide many of the routine health services you need, and you generally pay less out of your own pocket for care. Please visit the Student Health Services website to schedule an appointment or view hours of operation.

You also may visit any licensed health care provider directly for covered services in Aetna's preferred provider* network (doctors, specialists, facilities).

If you see a provider that is not in Aetna's preferred provider network, you will have to pay the full cost; this plan does not cover services from Non-Preferred Providers and Facilities (except in true emergencies).

To learn more about preferred providers, visit

The Loyola Marymount Student Health Services is a full-service medical office accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care. Health services are available to all students enrolled in six or more semester hours. The staff includes a board certified physician and nurse practitioners in addition to registered nurses and trained support staff.

For more information, call Student Health Services at (310) 338-2881. In the event of an emergency, call 911 or the Department of Public Safety at (310) 338-2893.
