A School-Based Health Center (SBHC) is available at your child's school or a nearby school during the school year. The SBHC is staffed and operated by OneWorld Community Health Centers or Charles Drew Community Health Center and provides on-site medical services. The SBHC is able to diagnose and treat many common conditions, such as:
The SBHC does not replace your child's regular health care provider, but rather they can supplement the services he/she provides. Help will provide in finding a primary health care provider outside of the SBHC if your child(ren) does not currently have one. The SBHC does NOT provide emergency services.
If you have Medicaid, Kids Connection or private health insurance, the SBHC will provide services, collect required co-pays and send bills to your insurance carrier. If your child is not eligible for Medicaid or have private insurance, a sliding fee scale will be used to cover expenses. If using the sliding fee scale, during your first visit please provide pay stubs for one month. Additionally, if you currently do not have health insurance coverage, the SBHC staff will work with your family to help enroll your child(ren) into Kids Connection or Medicaid if eligible. Absolutely no child will be turned away due to a family's inability to pay.
In order for your child(ren) to be seen in the health center, a signed parent consent form and your child’s health history must ordinarily be on file in the SBHC. You can obtain parent consent and health history forms through your child's school, school nurse, or download forms from the www.ops.org/sbhc. Once parent consent and health history forms are completed and signed, please return them to the school nurse's office, or bring them to the SBHC during your child's scheduled appointment.

If you wish to use the SBHC, please contact the SBHC nearest to your home or child’s school to schedule an appointment. For your child(ren)'s first visit, you will be asked to provide:
Should your child get ill during the school day, your school nurse will contact you and coordinate care with the SBHC staff.
