When school is out for the summer, children and teens still have medical and behavioral health needs. Axis Health System’s School-Based Health Centers are open all summer at two locations, and the staff is ready to offer care – often with a same-day appointment.
The SBHCs at Durango High School and Florida Mesa Elementary School offer both behavioral health and medical care appointments, such as counseling, sports and camp physicals for $25, and annual check-ups. Both SBHCs offer all required school immunizations on site.
Students will be billed for services provided in accordance with any insurance benefits they have, or as self-pay if not covered by insurance. A sliding-fee discount program is available to those students who qualify. Sports physicals are available at a flat rate and not billed to insurance.
