    What services are offered by PM School Health? 

    PM School Health provides both physical and mental health services to schools. Each school district decides which of these services they would like to be offered to their students. Please check with your school to determine which services are being offered in your school district.

    What is the cost of the PM School Health service? 

    There is no cost for services at the time of the visit and no student will be turned away from services due to lack of insurance. For those families who have health insurance, PM Pediatric Care will collect this insurance information at time of registration and will submit the claim to your insurance company for services provided. Your insurance company will determine any additional financial responsibilities based on your individual policy. If your child is uninsured, you will not receive a bill for these services.

    How do I schedule a PM School Health visit? 

    Visits are scheduled by a student’s school personnel. You may request that your child be seen by contacting your school. Physical health visits may be requested on demand by a designated member of your child’s school.

    Mental health visits may be scheduled during a time of day that does not interfere with a student’s academic classes by a designated member of your child’s school.

    Can parents/guardians participate in the visit? 

    Parents/guardians can be added to a physical health visit virtually (phone or video) upon request. Parents/guardians are encouraged to participate in part of the behavioral health visits virtually either by phone or video as appropriate for age and condition.

    How will I know if my child has been seen by a PM School Health specialist? 

    After a physical health visit, discharge summaries will be sent to parents/guardians via secure email or text. It is important a child’s medical home is aware of all care and we will send a copy of the visit summary to your child’s medical home on record.

    Mental health specialists will provide updates over the course of treatment via phone, secure text and /or secure e-mail. Once the student’s goals are met, the clinician will provide a summary with further recommendations if needed via secure email or text. It is important that a child’s medical home is aware of all care a child receives so we will send a summary of care to your child’s medical home on record.

    What if the PM School Health specialist cannot diagnose my problem with a telemedicine visit? 

    In some instances, the clinician may discover a more serious condition that requires your child to be seen in person for a more thorough examination or testing that is not available at school. In these cases, our clinician will work with your school’s designated personnel to facilitate the appropriate referral.
