Major illnesses will be referred off campus or to a family physician.

Health fees cover costs of physician and nursing services rendered in the Health Center for all resident students.
The student health fee is included in the residence fee paid by on-campus students. Meredith College apartment residents and commuter students must pay the Health Center fee, $100 per semester, to receive services.
Some prescriptions, x-rays, laboratory tests, the Gynecology Clinic, student teacher physicals, emergency room fees, and consultations with physicians off campus must be paid for by the student.
A limited amount of over-the-counter and prescription medication is available to students without additional charge.
Class Absence Excuses
Written class excuses are not provided by the Health Center. Health Center staff will, however, verify the illness of a student at the request of a faculty member. Specific medical details will not be released without written permission of the student.
Campus police may provide transportation to the Health Center if the student is unable to get there on her own.
