Letter from the Health Center

April 2016

Dear Parents,

Greetings from the Health Center at Concord Academy! We are excited to be continuing our partnership with CareFlow Student Health Records for the 2016–17 school year. All student health information is collected electronically, and can be reviewed and updated online annually.

The CareFlow log-in information will be sent to you in mid-June, with complete instructions for entering or updating student health information and uploading physical exam reports, immunization records, and any other required forms. You will be guided through the process step-by-step, and CareFlow’s technical help desk will be available to answer any questions you might have.

Insurance – Concord Academy requires that all students be covered by health insurance. You will be asked to provide insurance information as part of the student health form process. If you live outside Massachusetts, please be sure that your insurance plan will cover medical care for your child while s/he is away at school. Many out-of-state plans cover Emergency Room care, but do not cover appointments for non-emergent care, diagnostic testing, or specialists. Any medical charges not covered by insurance will be your responsibility. If your policy is insufficient, or you wish to have additional comprehensive accident/illness coverage, we strongly encourage you to sign up for student insurance through the Concord Academy Finance Office. Concord Academy has contracted with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care to provide student health insurance at a reasonable cost. Financial aid discounts apply.

Sexual Health – Massachusetts state law permits minors to receive contraceptive counseling, contraception (including emergency contraception), and screening for sexually transmitted infections without parental consent. When requested, Concord Academy Health Services may assist your child in accessing these services. You may wish to discuss these issues with your child prior to the start of school.

The health forms due date is August 1, 2016. Students without completed health forms will not be permitted to register for classes. Please take the time now to schedule your child’s physical; s/he must have a physical examination every year for school and sports participation.

If you have any questions between now and June, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 978-402-2333, or healthcenter@concordacademy.org.

Thank you for helping us to maintain your child’s health while at Concord Academy.

Sincerely,

Eve Fraser-Corp, R.N.                      Gianna Drew, R.N.
