The Student Health Center
The Student Health Center provides non-emergent, outpatient medical care for all currently enrolled, eligible students who have paid the Health Fee portion of the Student Programs and Services Fee. Health Center Clinics are divided into Primary Clinical Service areas and Specialty Service areas. You may see a full listing of our clinics, services, and important patient health and scheduling information at Clinics and Services .
Students who have paid the Health Fee portion of the Student Programs and Services Fee are eligible for services at the Health Center. To verify eligibility, students who have never been seen as a patient at the Student Health Center or those carrying < 9 credit hours should first speak with a Health Center Receptionist or call: (865) 974-3648.
Health Fee Coverage Dates:
Spring 2016 Semester: 11 Jan 2016 – 27 May 2016
Summer 2016 Semester: 31 May 2016 – 12 Aug 2016
Fall 2016 Semester: 15 Aug 2016 – 6 Jan 2017
The cost of all Health Center Provider visits are covered by each semester’s Health Fee. However, if you receive any of the following services, there will be additional, nominal charges associated with your visit: all lab work, immunizations, injections, x-rays, and disposable medical supplies (i.e. crutches, splints, etc.).
With the exception of the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance, the Student Health Center does not bill individual health insurers for these charges. Subsequent to payment, the Student Health Center will issue an itemized statement of charges which may then submitted by the student to their individual health insurers. The Health Center does not require payment on the day services are rendered.
Appointments and Scheduling:
All Health Center Providers are seen by appointment only. Sixty percent of our daily appointments are for same day assessment and care through our Primary Clinical Service areas.
