Eligibility & Cost


Only students who have paid the health fee portion of the Student Programs and Services Fee are eligible for services through the Student 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 Student Health Center visits is covered by each semester’s health fee. However, if you receive any of the following services, including all lab work, immunizations, injections, x-rays, and durable medical goods (i.e. crutches, splints, etc.), there will be additional, nominal charges associated with your visit.

More information regarding lab and x-ray charges is available on our Laboratory Services and Radiology Department pages.

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 be submitted by the student to their individual health insurers. The Student Health Center does not require payment on the day services are rendered.
