Off-Campus Health Services
University Health Services staff may assess students in-office and decide that a referral to an outside resource is necessary. UArts currently has a contract with two local physician's offices.
Affiliated Physician's Offices:
One affiliation is with Thomas Jefferson Family Medicine Associates (JFMA) which is located at 833 Chestnut Street, Suite 301. Their office is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The JFMA on-call doctor is available 24 hours a day at 215-955-7190.
Services are offered free of charge by JFMA with a referral from the University Nurse. Students must be seen in our office and obtain a referral slip in order for the co-pay cost to be waived. Students should bring the referral form, a Student ID, and their insurance card (in case a prescription is provided) at the time of their appointment.
Our other affiliation is with the Y-Hep Health Center which is located at 1207 Chestnut, 5th Floor. In order to obtain a free appointment at this clinic (relating to primary care), students must first be evaluated by a nurse in the UArts Office of Health Services and given a referral sheet.
More information on Y-Hep can be found on their website at fight.org/programs/y-hep-health-center. Students should bring the referral form, a Student ID, and their insurance card (in case a prescription is provided) at the time of their appointment.
