Whether you are a local student or someone far from home, living on a budget can be difficult. Especially if you need medical care and don’t have access to insurance. Below is a list of some ideas to save money and get needed services when you’re in a pinch.
Located at 245 Midway Medical Park, Bristol, TN 37620
If you don’t have insurance, don’t worry! Healing Hands Health Center offers medical, dental and vision care for students who don’t have insurance and can provide a current school schedule with their name on it. They provide acute dental care including exams, x-rays, fillings, extractions, and cleanings. Along with that they provide primary care office visits for $25, and medication assistance on a 90-day supply of name brand medications for $5. They also provide specialty referrals free of charge via Project Access.
They will be holding a free health clinic on September 29th and the 30th and will be offering a range of services from physicals to various testing. Please see the flyer below for specifics.
If you’re having trouble adjusting to campus life, or just need an ear to listen. The on-campus counselor, Heather Braddock, offers single, couples and group session options. Contact the Counseling center for a free appointment, via firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (423) 652- 4742!
There is an on-campus food pantry located in the Snider’s Honors House, past the Tadlock-Wallace house. This is available for any student in need of emergency food security. The pantry remains locked, so if you need access, please contact the Student Affairs Office (email@example.com or 423-652-4740). It is available Monday through Friday from 8AM to 4PM.
Also, make sure to take advantage of student discounts offered at local businesses for King University students by showing your student ID, as well as visiting local thrift shops for accessible clothing and other items at a cheaper price!
