A: CareSTL Health is dedicated to increasing the number of access points of care for our community. Our children are our future and it is imperative children are knowledgeable about healthcare and the importance of preventative care. Healthcare services available on site where a child spends the majority of their day gives them the opportunity to ask questions, receive health education, and immediately address their health care needs. While it is always best for a parent to accompany their child to all appointments, we understand there may be times when they need care at school, on site and a parent is unable to attend. We Care. We are here to assist parents, teachers, school nurses, and school counselors address the needs of students in the districts we serve. 

.

A: Each partnership with a school district is unique. Therefore services vary based on the need identified by our school partner. CareSTL Health provides well trained pediatric providers who can treat students for medical services covering the usual acute care. This includes pink eye, seasonal colds, immunizations, and physicals. Licensed behavioral health providers are also available to provide individual and group counseling.

A: Students must have an “Authorization to Treat a Minor Child” consent form signed by a parent or guardian and turned in to the school in order to receive healthcare services.

A: Authorization to Treat a Minor Child forms can be obtained from the school district and some districts have made the form available on their website. Forms can be submitted year around. Unfortunately, consent to treat cannot be accepted verbally.  Once a form has been submitted, the student has access to services for the length of their time in the district.
