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.
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.
