Elementary School Kids Elementary School Kids

I was just wondering if any of your schools charge you as well if your child makes a visit. Luckily, our insurance will pay any of the cost BUT I know some people don't have the same insurance. I think a basic "kid gets hurt and needs to be treated aka ice and such" is about $220. I just don't get it. When did we start charging for nurse visits in public school? My kids are on strick rules to NOT go if at all possible!

I've never heard of that. What about the kids that have to do on a daily basis to get medication, check blood sugar if diabetic, etc. ?

I have never heard of such.  Our kids are not charged for the school nurse. That is crazy!

Wth? Never heard of that... The nurse never does anything, but call me whenever they had to go see her anyway.

OMG! No way! Not all of our schools have a full time nurse though and maybe thats how they fund one. We do have a clinic bus that goes to the different schools on different days. It's funded by various organizations including a local hospital and the Ronald McDonald house. Your child can be seen if needed when he is at school or you can take him/her to wherever it is if you need to. If you have insurance they will bill the insurance but if you don't then its free. I am not completely clear about copays but I think those are covered by grants.
