School-Based Health Centers

chalk and chalkboardGoing to a school-based health center (SBHC) allows kids to get health care without missing too much school. Having a health center right in school lets kids be seen quickly and efficiently. Sometimes parents can't take time off from work to bring their children to the doctor. And it's difficult for kids to miss school when they have doctor's appointments. A SBHC solves these problems by letting kids be seen where they already are: in school!


A school based health center is not the same as the school nurse's office. School nurses and SBHCs work together, and school nurses often refer students to SBHCs because they are able to treat and resolve student health problems. All SBHC services are confidential. Parents must sign a Parent Permission Form for students to receive services. SBHCs are also able to bill Medicaid and HUSKY A & B health maintenance organizations for services provided to students covered by these health plans.
