School-Based Health Care
Pittsburg Community Schools has partnered with the Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas to provide onsite medical, behavioral, and oral health at all Pittsburg Community Schools.
Who can be seen at a School-Based Health Care?
The School-Based Health Center services are available to all students of the Pittsburg Community School District and members of their households. These services are also available to all school district faculty and employees.
What is the cost to be seen?
All children are seen regardless of ability to pay. To cover the cost of providing school-based health services CHC/SEK does bill public and private insurance. Private foundations and other private donors also contribute to support of the program. Those families without insurance are asked to complete a financial assistance application. All children are seen with no out of pocket cost.
