  2. Nominal fees will be charged for most services rendered, with faculty, staff and their spouse, and students' spouses being charged slightly higher fees than those paid by currently-enrolled students for selected medical services. The services of the mental health counselor are free of charge.
  3. Appropriate referrals will be made to a family practitioner or to a specialist when indicated. Emergency or complicated cases will be referred immediately to nearby hospitals or other accredited health care facilities.
