Healthy Kids School-Based Health Clinics provides primary and mental health care services to residents of Johnson County, ages 0-21, who are uninsured, underinsured (such as high deductible), and those who experience barriers to health care. We also help to connect families to appropriate resources if your child is eligible for insurance and/or if you are new Iowa residents. Healthy Kids cannot act as a full-fledged medical home for students of the district as we are limited in provider hours and resources however we will happily help to connect a family with regular doctor if this has yet to be established.
We also offer mental health care services including referrals for counseling and mental health care services. We have a child & adolescent psychiatrist who provides limited hours to Healthy Kids as a partnership with the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Please contact Healthy Kids Mental Health Clinic Coordinator at Alyssa Rodriguez or (319) 631-3204 or contact the designated school Student and Family Advocate with questions on how to initiate the process.
