School Based Health

School Based Health

Increasing access to care is part of our vision for community health. Alluvion Health understands the quicker individuals can access care, the better their health outcomes. For youth this means providing an innovative approach to bring care to them. Students spend most of their days in school, so Alluvion Health has joined the nationwide movement to bring School-Based Health Centers to Great Falls Public Schools!

When a health center is located inside of the school, the benefits to the student impact more than just their health. Students don’t have to miss as much class to get to an appointment and parents don’t have to take time off work to take their child to see their provider.

Our School-Based Health Center staff are licensed health care providers, who work with school nurses to provide expanded medical and behavioral health services to students during the school day.

Is there a charge for using the School-Based Health Center?
The School-Based Health Center accepts Medicare, Medicaid, Healthy Montana Kids, and most insurance plans. If you have insurance, we will bill directly to your insurance company and you will be responsible for co-pays and any unmet deductible amounts. For those with or without insurance, we offer a sliding fee scale that is based on income and family size. It is also important to note that no child will be denied services due to the inability to pay.

In order for students to receive services, a complete and signed consent form must be returned, and be on file prior to the child being seen. In addition to the signed consent forms, parents and/or guardians will be contacted via phone before providing services to minors as a second verification for all medical services.
