Campbell County Schools now offers virtual school-based telehealth visits through St. Elizabeth Healthcare for students starting this school year.
Telehealth visits can be set up for students with non-emergent health issues who will be seen by a physician via the computer while the student is at school.
With parent permission, the school health provider will determine if the student’s health issue is appropriate for a physician telehealth visit and initiate the process. Parents will always be contacted before the visit, and can participate remotely from their location. As with any healthcare visit, all telehealth appointments will remain confidential.
Should any prescriptions be needed, they can be called into the family’s pharmacy. Each telehealth visit will be treated and billed as a medical office visit, and St. Elizabeth will bill insurance. Any co-pay requirement or non-insurance coverage will be billed to the parent.
If a child’s primary care physician is not affiliated with St. Elizabeth, they can still participate in the telehealth visit program by completing a registration form. Only registered students are eligible to participate in the virtual visits.
Parents are encouraged to contact their child’s school if they need additional information about the telehealth program, which is also available for all Campbell County Staff.
