Your student’s school and Shalom Health Care Center have joined forces to operate a school-based health clinic, providing access to quality health services for students. It is our goal to help your family by providing medical services for your child while they are in school, assisting your child’s physician with their healthcare needs, and providing access to healthcare for those who do not have any healthcare services.
Our clinics are staffed with RNs, LPNs, medical assistants, or Advanced Practice Providers (APP) such as Nurse Practitioners or Physician Assistants. An APP has a Master’s degree or higher, and has been trained and licensed by the state to diagnose and treat. Our services are not intended to replace your child’s primary care provider. Our intent is to expand access to healthcare by working with families and their health providers to offer quality health care in the school setting.
In accordance with Indiana State Law, all families wishing to receive health services from Shalom’s school-based clinics (SBC) must sign a consent to treat form and complete a brief medical history. This information provides our medical staff with the most up-to-date medical information for your child. Any information given will remain confidential as part of your child’s medical record. The consent form will be invalid if any portion of the form is not fully complete.
This consent form is accepted at any school with a Shalom SBC and is valid through the entire school year. A written request to withdraw consent for treatment must be completed by the parent or guardian in order to discontinue services. The parent or guardian is responsible for notifying the clinic of any changes to the student’s health history, guardianship and/or demographic information.
This program is provided at no cost to you or your family. Shalom will bill and collect from Medicaid and other third party health insurances your child may have. We do require insurance information be provided in order to provide services. This ensures our ability to continue school-based clinic services and care for your child.
Thank you for your cooperation and allowing us to participate in your child’s health care needs.
