School-Based Health Center (SBHC) Overview
On-Campus Health Care Coming in Fall 2018!
Get ready for excellent health care at school!
A School-Based Health Center (SBHC) for Brighton High School (BHS) students will be opening at BHS in fall 2018. The health center will provide the following health care services:
- Annual check-ups/ sports physicals
- Visits for sickness/ injury
- Confidential teen health services
- Health education on diet, exercise, alcohol/drug prevention, etc.
- Preventive dental care (such as screening, cleaning, sealants, etc.)
- Mental health counseling
- The health center will be open to BHS students during school hours.
- Students must enroll in the health center before receiving care. Enrollment information will be available soon. Parent/guardian signature will be required for enrollment (excluding confidential services).
- All BHS students can enroll in the SBHC, regardless of health insurance status, immigration status, or regular source of health care.
- The SBHC will not replace students’ current insurance or regular doctor; instead, the SBHC is an additional resource that makes it easier for students to get health care.
- Medicaid, CHP+, and private insurance will be billed if possible, but there will be no charge for copays or deductibles. Insurance is not required for medical care.
