Medication and Equipment

Medications

The Health Services stocks certain standard medications. Some of these are available free of charge for illnesses such as colds. Other medications, also stocked, are available at cost or close to cost. Required medications not stocked by the Health Services must be obtained at an outside pharmacy by the patient. We can direct students to local pharmacies. Health Services cannot fill prescriptions from outside physicians unless the prescription is a result of a referral by the Health Services.

Medications will not be dispensed for chronic illnesses requiring long term use.

Emergency Contraception, Plan B, is available at Health Services. The cost is $20 which includes the mandatory pregnancy test.

Equipment

Certain appliances, such as crutches, canes, and some splints are available on loan at no charge. Other appliances are available at cost.
