Parents and staff can enroll in the program at the beginning of the school year or anytime during the year. When a student visits the school medical assistant, the medical assistant will determine whether the patient needs to see an ARH provider. The school will notify the parents that the child needs a visit and will connect the patient with an ARH provider for an on-demand visit. If the student is not contagious they may return to class and if the provider determines that they need 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 ConnectedCare School Program is currently available at the following schools in the Floyd County School District:
John M. Stumbo Elementary
May Valley Elementary
Adams Middle School
Betsy Layne High School
Prestonsburg High School
Renaissance Learning Center
Entering the program will 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.
Our program will further reduce barriers to learning – when students are sick, they don’t learn well. Parents will also appreciate the reduced time need to take off from work!
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.
