Cincinnati Public Schools Offer Full-Service Health Centers
Cincinnati Public Schools offer full-service health centers at sites around the district to serve the medical needs of students, families and the community. Currently, there are 25 School-Based Health Centers to serve students’ needs; 10 of those centers are also open to the community.
The school based health centers offer routine health assessments; screenings for hearing and vision; acute illness and injury treatment; asthma and other chronic illness diagnosis and management; immunizations and vaccinations; routine lab tests; medication prescriptions; health, fitness and nutrition education; and dental services at select locations.
At these school-based health centers, no one is denied medical services because of an inability to pay the bill. A patient’s insurance is billed where possible — including Medicaid or private insurance — and any unpaid portion is usually covered by donations and other support.
Enrollment packets are available in English and Spanish, and a number of their forms are available to download, complete, and fax before one’s visit, including:
The Immunization Screening Questionnaire,
The Administration of Prescription Rx Medication Form, and
The Authorization for Administration of Over-the-Counter Medications at School.
For those CPS schools that do have a school based health center, CPS also receives donations to cover the cost of transporting students to one of the other school health centers.
