Fees and Health Insurance
Undergraduates pay a health fee with their tuition that covers most services in the Health Center each semester.
Graduate and pharmacy students pay $20 for each nurse practitioner visit.
We do not bill health insurance for any service. It is HIGHLY recommended that all students have a health insurance policy to cover costs for emergencies and non-covered services. Coverage should include providers and hospitals in the Nashville vicinity. A $500,000 limit per year is recommended with a reasonable deductible that could be paid by the student. Information on Student Health Insurance Policies can be found on the Business Office website.
