    The Lafene Health Center is a modern ambulatory healthcare facility designed to provide for most student outpatient health needs. The health center is fully accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. Students who have paid the health fee as a part of their tuition are eligible for care. Non-student spouses, university conference participants, and other campus visitors may receive care upon payment of a special fee.

    Lafene Health Center provides, through a full complement of medical and other professional personnel, a range of services that include special clinics for sports-related injuries, women, and allergies and immunizations, as well as a clinic for general care. Also included are services in health education, nutrition, and physical therapy. The services of a pharmacy, laboratory, and x-ray are available at reduced rates.

    The center is staffed by full-time physicians with medical support personnel. When necessary, the student is referred to specialists for treatment at the student's expense.

    After regular clinic hours, a student who is ill or injured may receive medical care at a local hospital, at the student's expense. Home visits are not made. The local ambulance service is available, when needed, to transport patients to the appropriate health care facility.

    Insurance
    It is strongly recommended that all students at K-State carry medical insurance, either through the parents' plan at home or through the university-sponsored student health insurance plan available at special rates. This latter plan covers most services provided at Lafene Health Center and allowed claims for medical expenses if the student requires care away from the campus.

    Medical history
    K-State requires a complete medical history, including a current immunization record, on all new students or transfer students. This history must be completed on the Kansas State University medical history form and is required prior to provision of non-emergency treatment at the health center. A physical examination is not required, but encouraged, and a copy of this examination assists the staff in evaluating illnesses. If a student has a continuing medical problem, a summary from the attending physician is helpful should treatment at the center be needed. Students receiving allergy injections must furnish instructions from their allergist before injections can be administered at the health center.

    International students from countries with a high incidence of tuberculosis and others who have spent more than four months in such a country are required by university policy to be skin tested for tuberculosis prior to enrolling at K-State.
