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 .
Only students who have paid the Health Fee portion of the Student Programs and Services Fee are eligible for services through the Health Center, including the special pricing arrangement for After-hours Care through the UT Medical Center Emergency Room. To verify eligibility, students who have never been seen as a patient at the Student Health Center or those carrying fewer than nine (9) credit hours should first speak with a Health Center Receptionist or call: (865) 974-3648.

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.
Attention TennCare/Medicaid Patients:
Student Health Center providers are not registered TennCare/Medicaid providers. As such, the following services are not presently covered by your TennCare/Medicaid insurance when ordered by our providers:
Durable Medical Goods (e.g. crutches, splints, boots, etc….)
If you desire to use your TennCare/Medicaid insurance to help defray the costs of these services, please let us know. We can assist you in obtaining care through a facility where your insurance can be utilized.
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.
