COST: School-Based Health Centers are funded through third-party insurance, Medicaid, grants and public funds. Providing us with insurance information allows us to bill your insurance and reduces our need for public funding so we can provide services to as many students as possible. If your insurance doesn’t pay for all or part of the cost and you are not able to pay for services you will not be denied services.


SURVEY: Students between the ages of 12 and 19 who visit the SBHC may be asked to complete an anonymous survey after their visit. The survey asks about the student’s satisfaction and experience at the SBHC, as well as some general questions about their physical and mental health status. Students can refuse to take the survey and this will not affect their ability to get care at the SBHC.
