CONSOLIDATED SCHOOL DISTRICT
School-Based Health Services
Community Health Center, Inc. is at your school! The School-Based Health Center is offered in the Consolidated School District of New Britain for the benefit of the students. School-based health services work in conjunction with the care provided by your child’s pediatrician and are not intended to replace regular care by your child’s primary health-care provider.
The SBHC offers many services including medical, mental health and dental. All children enrolled in the school based health services program are eligible to receive services regardless of insurance status. For medical and behavioral health services, CHC accepts most insurance plans and there are NO out of pocket expenses. For dental services, there is a small fee if there is no insurance coverage. If you have no insurance, please ask SBHC staff about HUSKY insurance.
To begin receiving services, please go to www.SBHC1.com to sign up quickly and easily online! If you prefer, you can print and complete the enrollment form. Please note all parts of this registration/enrollment form must be completed, signed and returned to the Health Center or the School Main Office before your child can receive services.
