Will the services of the Center cost anything?
No student will be denied health services because he or she cannot pay for them. If you have private insurance or Mass Health, the Health Center will do the necessary billing for the services you receive. If you have no insurance, we can offer you assistance to access one of the coverage plans provided by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Will my reason for using the Student Health Center be kept private?
All information is kept confidential except when the student is a danger to herself or himself or to others. The Center staff and school nurse will not tell anyone why you came to the Health Center.
Do I need permission to use the Center?
If you are under 18 years old, a parent or guardian must sign the attached consent form before you can be seen at the Student Health Center. However, if you do not have a signed consent form, your school nurse is available as always to access medical problems.
