Bolivar R-1 students and staff can receive acute care through telehealth visits during school hours, Monday-Friday.
In-school telehealth visits will help determine if the student or staff member can stay at school or needs to go home.
In-school telehealth visits could include:
- Sore throat
- Stomach aches
- Skin problems
- Strep test
- COVID test
The telehealth appointments are with providers from CMH Pediatric Clinic and CMH Butterfield Park Medical Center. Each appointment will be assisted by an on-site Navigator provided by CMH.
The on-site Bolivar School's Navigator will help with visits to ensure each telehealth visit is timely and effective.
Parents can participate in the telehealth visits from their home or workplace and must give consent for a child to participate in the visit.
Visits are covered by most local and major insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid. Without insurance, the in-school telehealth visits will cost $30.
The Bolivar School's Navigator will be available by phone Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m., when school is in session.
For more information about the program, parents can call or text the on-site CMH navigator at 417-516-4262.
