Parents and staff can enroll in the program at the beginning of the school year or anytime during the year. When a student or staff member visits the school nurse or health assistant, they will determine whether the patient needs to see an ARH provider. The school will contact the parent or legal guardian for consent, if necessary, and the patient will be connected with an ARH provider for an on-demand visit. If the patient is not contagious, they may return to class/work and if the provider determines that a student needs to go home the parent will be notified. A post-visit report will be sent to the child’s primary care provider and sent home with the student.
The school telehealth program can help improve attendance due to students not having to miss class for a doctor’s appointment. Illnesses can be treated early, improving health outcomes and leading to fewer missed days of school. Parents will also appreciate the reduced need to take time off of work to pick students up from school and wait in a clinic to see a physician if an illness happens.
Our program can further reduce barriers to learning – when students are sick, they don’t learn well.
Your insurance will be billed and copays and deductibles will apply in the same way as a regular clinic visit. Please contact your insurance company for more information.
Prescriptions will be sent to your normal pharmacy.
