Emory & Henry maintains an outpatient health center and provides outpatient medical treatment for minor illness and injury. Student fees cover office visit costs for medical services. No insurance is filed, no copays are required. Supply charges, normally under $10, such as over-the-counter medications and non-returnable therapeutic equipment are placed on the student's account in the CSA office. If you provide allergy serum, shots are administered for the cost of the disposable syringe. For laboratory tests and prescription medications, insurance is filed by the outside provider or pharmacy.
All health records are confidential and not connected to academic records in any way. The College complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. For more information, view the HIPAA Policy.
Campus medical services are not intended to meet the needs of serious illness or accident. Treatment for such is the responsibility of each student, faculty/staff, and their family.
Students are responsible for providing their own transportation in non-emergency situations. Students too ill to attend class should arrange medical attention during regular Health Center hours. Appointments are preferred, walk-ins will be seen as time allows. The student is responsible for communicating with professors regarding academic work missed due to illness.
Resident students requiring medical attention at hours other than the scheduled health center hours should contact the area coordinator or resident advisor on duty to arrange for care. During hours when the Health Center is closed, two Urgent Care centers are available to students:
If a serious injury occurs on campus that requires emergency treatment or hospitalization, contact Campus Police, the area coordinator on duty, or the resident advisor on duty for assistance. The emergency room at Johnston Memorial Hospital in Abingdon is available 24 hours daily, 7 days a week. For emergency transportation, call 911 for a rescue squad and be specific about your location.
To assist the college in providing appropriate care, all students are required to present a completed health form as provided by the college admissions office at the time of admission.
