What can the School Based Health Center do for my child?

A School-Based Health Center (SBHC) is staffed and operated by OneWorld Community Health Centers or Charles Drew Health Center to provide on-site medical services.  The SBHC does not replace your child's regular health care provider, but rather they can supplement the services he/she provides. However, if you do not have a regular provider for your child, the SBHC can serve as a link to a medical home at either OneWorld Community Health Centers or Charles Drew Health Center.  The SBHC does NOT provide emergency services.

Facts and Questions

What can the SBHC do for my child?

A School-Based Health Center (SBHC)  is staffed and operated by OneWorld Community Health Centers or Charles Drew 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. However, if you do not have a regular provider for your child, the SBHC can serve as a link to a medical home at either OneWorld Community Health Centers or Charles Drew Health Center.  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.

Our Outreach Staff

Adamira Ramirez

Ms. Ramirez has been employed with OneWorld Community Health Centers since May of 2014 after coming here from Texas.  OneWorld is Adamira’s first experience working for a non-profit organization.  She started working in the Insurance Marketplace Staff at OneWorld where she received some of her training prior to joining the SBHC team in October of 2014 as the Outreach and Enrollment Specialist. 

Adamira says “I am passionate about working with the community especially in the SBHC’s.  The SBHC is a great program that allows many of the children in the community to have access to healthcare.   It allows me to engage with families in need of Healthcare services as well as insurance options. The majority of children qualify for the state Medicaid program.  However, due to different barriers, families do not seek or fail to apply for insurance. 

As a community advocate, I am able to provide resources to these families; whether it’s to schedule an appointment, enroll them to the SBHC, signing them up for insurance or just providing them with access to many of the different services available through our FQHC.”

Ms. Ramirez is married with two younger children.  One of them is a goalkeeper at a local soccer team and I spend much of my weekend time watching him play.  I also love sleeping when I can.  My dog Casper is a great companion when it comes to nap time.  He’s white and fluffy and full of love!

Sarah Miller, APRN, CPNP-PC

Ms. Miller earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Creighton University in May 2000 and her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Creighton University in December 2001.  She completed her Master of Science in Nursing degree at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in May 2007.  Ms. Miller is certified with the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in Primary Care. 

Ms. Miller started working inpatient pediatrics at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2002.  That same year, she began working as a clinic nurse at OneWorld Community Health Centers.  Since, 2007, she has been employed as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner by OneWorld , caring for the underserved, immigrant children.  In early 2010, Mrs. Miller started as the Associate Medical Director.

When OneWorld had the opportunity to open three school based health centers in mid-2010, Ms. Miller played a key role in helping to develop clinical procedures and processes that maximized our use of resources and collaboration with the schools.  In February 2014, Ms. Miller’s title changed to Director of Medical Services and Associate Medical Director for the SBHCs to better reflect her role of clinic coordination and collaboration with the OneWorld Management Team.

The reason Ms. Miller loves the SBHCs is because “I believe that providing quality, affordable, and accessible health care in schools helps students to maximize their time in school and graduate from high school.  I believe that we are partners with the students’ educational team to help change the trajectory for students who may be living in poverty.”  Her hobbies include spending time with family, sports and watching movies. An interesting fact about Ms. Miller is that she is “a proud mom of 3 kids, has an amazing husband, and is a die-hard baseball fan!”
