Frequently Asked Questions
Who is eligible to use the health center?
All students who submit a signed parental consent form are eligible for services in the School-Based Health Centers.
Is student information confidential?
YES. Medical and behavioral health records are completely separate from school files.
Will students or parents be charged for health center services?
Services that are normally billed at a health clinic will be charged. Parents or a designated alternate will be contacted before billable services are provided, unless the parent has given prior permission for services to be given without further consent. PCC will bill insurance companies just as if the service were provided at the Franklin or North Fork Clinics. If a student has no insurance, they will be billed according to their ability to pay. No student will be refused service due to inability to pay.
