following services when the capabilities exist and within the following constraints:
a. Treatment for minor illnesses (e.g., colds, sore throats, etc.) to enable the employee to
complete the current work shift before consulting a personal physician.
b. Treatment of injuries incurred on the job. Initial evaluation for on-the-job injuries will be

for care received from a nonfederal provider after release or referral by the Coast Guard is
