Facts and Questions

What can the SBHC do for my child?

A School-Based Health Center (SBHC) is available at your child's school or a nearby school during the school year.  The SBHC is staffed and operated by OneWorld Community Health Centers of Charles Drew Community Health Center to provide on-site medical services.  The SBHC is able to diagnose and treat many common conditions, such as:

  • Sore throats
  • Headaches
  • Ear infections
  • Burns, scrapes, sprains and minor wounds
  • Immunizations
  • Physicals, school and sports
  • Preventive care and screenings

The SBHC does not replace your child's regular health care provider, but rather they can supplement the services he/she provides.  Help will be provided in finding a primary health care provider outside of the SBHC if your child(ren) does not currently have one.  The SBHC does NOT provide emergency services.

Who can use the SBHC?

The SBHCs are able to provide health services to:

  • ALL OPS students
  • Minor siblings of all OPS students birth through 18 years)
  • Early childhood populations from Head Start, Educare, and ECS Network of Excellence

What are my payment options when using the SBHC?

If you have Medicaid, Kids Connection or private health insurance, the SBHC will provide services, collect required co-pays and send bills to your insurance carrier. If your child is not eligible for Medicaid or have private insurance, a sliding fee scale will be used to cover expenses. If using the sliding fee scale, during your first visit please provide pay stubs for one month. Additionally, if you currently do not have health insurance coverage, the SBHC staff will work with your family to help enroll your child(ren) into Kids Connection or Medicaid if eligible. Absolutely no child will be turned away due to a family's inability to pay. 

How do I get my child(ren) enrolled into the SBHC?

In order for your child(ren) to be seen in the health center, a signed parent consent form and your child’s health history must be on file in the SBHC. You can obtain parent consent and health history forms through your child's school, school nurse, or download forms (listed to the right) or from www.ops.org/sbhc. Once the parent consent and health history forms are completed and signed, please return them to the school nurse's office, or bring them to the SBHC during your child's scheduled appointment.

If I choose to enroll my child in the SBHC, can they still visit the school nurse?

Yes. All children enrolled in the SBHC will still have access to services provided by the school nurse regardless of their status with the SBHC.

How do I make an appointment for my child?

If you wish to use the SBHC, please contact the SBHC nearest to your home or child’s school to schedule an appointment. For your child(ren)'s first visit, you will be asked to provide:

  • Health history
  • SBHC Enrollment form if not already on file
  • Insurance / Medicaid card if eligible
  • Pay stubs for one month if using the sliding fee scale

Should your child get ill during the school day, your school nurse will contact you and coordinate care with the SBHC staff.

Kris Chavez

Kris Chavez taught Physical Education K-12 and Health Ed. 7-9 grades for over 30 years in the public schools and served as an adjunct professor instructor at UNO. Appointed by two governors to the Governor’s Council on Health Promotion and Physical Fitness, Kris served over 10 years promoting youth health and fitness, and served as co-chair on the Youth Health and Fitness committee which brought the first Youth Fitness Summit to Nebraska. The NE Department of Education appointed Kris to the Comprehensive School Wellness council where she served as a CHETTA (Comprehensive Health Education Team Trainer). After taking retirement, Kris started her own organizing business, worked on various grants and continues to enjoy backpacking, cross country skiing, kyaking with her husband, friends and family.   I am excited to be a part of Building Healthy Futures in the capacity of facilitating health education specifically, Health Advocacy and Literacy.  This new endeavor on the part of BHF will soon be piloted in three high schools.   From that jumping off point I see the curriculum being used in many other capacities.  I am particularly excited that we will be working with Avenue Scholars as we collaborate on the new curriculum for their juniors and seniors.  Bringing this information to the young people who are just on the edge of becoming independent is so very important.
