Five Rivers Health Centers and Mad River Local Schools Telehealth Partnership
Important Announcement: Five Rivers Health Centers and Mad River Local Schools Telehealth Partnership
Mad River Local Schools is proud to announce we will continue our partnership with Five Rivers Health Centers to provide support for students who have medical needs that can be addressed immediately in our schools.
The partnership will allow for medical telehealth services in our school buildings to students whose parents give consent. Students who need access will work directly with the school nurse to set appointments and follow-ups. This service will assist families who either have a challenge accessing medical services or need immediate basic medical attention for their student (think of it as a virtual little clinic). The new telehealth program will accept all insurances, including Medicaid eligible students, and provides a sliding fee scale for those who are uninsured or underinsured. Our goal in Mad River Local Schools is to ensure we are providing the best complete wraparound service that we can for our community. This goal fits well with Five Rivers Health Center’s mission to provide access to quality, comprehensive and respectful care for their patients and community.
For your child to be eligible to access the telehealth services, you will be required to complete a consent form. If you have already completed the consent form during the 2020-21 school year, there is no need to complete a new form. The consent form will come out during the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year and will be available both through OneView (our online registration system). Hard copies will also be available in each school building. This partnership is simply an additional service that Mad River Local Schools can provide for our students to help better meet their medical needs and is not intended to replace your primary health provider.
We look forward to this continued partnership as we strive to meet the needs of all our students in Mad River Local Schools.
