Dear Parent or Guardian,
We are excited to announce that Health-e-Schools telehealth services are available at your child’s school. Your school nurses have been trained to work with our healthcare providers online, via safe and secure computer equipment to see students during the school day.
We can treat illnesses, provide urgent and behavioral health care, and help students manage known medical conditions. We work with you; the parent or guardian and the school nurse to provide the best care possible. Our provider will contact you after the visit to discuss any concerns we note as well as treatment plans and options. Prescription medications will be sent to your usual pharmacy and visit notes will be sent to your primary care provider.
Your insurance, including all major carriers, Medicaid and NC Health Choice, will be billed just as it is when you visit your provider. No money will be exchanged in the nurse’s office; copays will be billed. If your child is uninsured, we will work with you on a generous sliding scale to ensure that he or she receives the same affordable care as well.
Each student is encouraged to utilize this service.
We can diagnose and treat:
• sinus congestion, common allergies, cold symptoms
• sore throat
• ear infections
• urinary symptoms
• behavioral health issues
• conjunctivitis (“pink eye”)
• many other common conditions and illnesses
If your child does not have a fever and is not diagnosed with a contagious condition, he or she will be allowed to finish their day at school. Or, if so required, our provider can send the nurse a school excuse.
We are always open to questions or concerns and welcome your feedback. Please visit our website, email, or call if you need additional information.
Once a student is enrolled, appointments may be scheduled by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by the school nurse. Nurses will always communicate with a parent or guardian before scheduling your student to see one of our providers.
We look forward to assisting you and your student by providing health care services at his or her school.
