About the Program
Heritage Health School Based Mobile Clinic is available to all students/school staff/and community members. No matter the location, all students may access at all times that the clinic is open. Please see the posted schedule. Community members may access during specified hours only to maintain student privacy.
The mission of the Clinic is “to provide quality physical and mental healthcare to promote student success and community wellness.” By accessing the School Based Mobile Clinic, a student may have decreased time away from the classroom, promoting learning and success.
The Mobile Clinic is staffed by a Family Nurse Practitioner that is certified to provide health care to all ages. The Nurse Practitioner may do physical exams, order lab work, complete minor procedures, and order prescriptions as indicated. Additionally, during school hours, a Master of Social Work (mental health) intern is available for counseling, at no cost, to assist students in coping with school and other life stresses.
All students under the age of 18 must have parental consent prior to receiving services, except for those services eligible for “minor consent” under Idaho State Law. Medicaid has a provision for school based services, in that acute care may be provided without a release from the primary care provider. All acute care visit records will be forwarded to the primary care provider to ensure continuity of care. Consent for release of some school records is helpful, although may be refused by the parent. School records regarding absences and class schedules are important when scheduling follow-up.
Parents may bring their student to the School Based Mobile Clinic, or they may designate another adult once parental consent is obtained. Older students that have transportation may access care without a parent present. IN ALL CASES the parent will be notified prior to care, except in the case of a medical emergency.
The consent form(s) is available for download, or you may request a copy from the school. Patients may be seen on a walk in basis or by appointment 208.661.1603
