The School Based Health Center serves as the center of health in the schools where they are based and provides the following services: Primary medical care, mental/behavioral health care, dental/oral health care, health education and promotion and more.
Students are seen with parental consent. Parents may attend the appointment with their child if desired. If a parent chooses not to be present for an appointment, the Health Center staff will contact the parent following the appointment to discuss the visit and recommendations. If a medication is prescribed, the parent will be notified and the prescription will be sent to the parent's selected pharmacy.
Charges for the Health Center appointment are submitted to all insurance plans and Medicaid. Individuals without insurance may qualify for a sliding fee scale and will be assisted with that process by Health Center staff. There is a nominal fee for individuals who are uninsured. No individual will be turned away for inability to pay.
