What does the student do if he or she cannot get an appointment for a physical exam/immunizations until after the due date for all of the required Health Forms?
Send in last year's physical exam with immunizations and when the student goes for their appointment, the student can bring in the new physical with any up dated immunizations to Health Services, or have their doctor's office fax them to us at (603) 641-7318.

Is the Menomune (Meningitis) Vaccine available at Health Services?

What does the Student Accident and Health Insurance plan cover?
Please call Lisa Farrington # (800) 537-6444 with any questions you may have regarding the school insurance.

Can the student get medical labs done at Health Service?
Yes.

Is there a cost for medical labs?
Yes. All throat cultures or blood tests that have to be sent to Quest Diagnostic Lab incur a fee.
Example: If a lab is recommended by the physician, nurse practitioner or nurse they will call the student's medical insurance company to see if it is covered. If not, they will then call the parent to ask how they would like them to deal with the situation.

If the student needs to get regular labs because of certain medications is that possible?
Yes, but a standing order from the student's primary physician/PA or nurse practitioner will be needed or the student will have to bring one in every time in order for the nurse to do the labs.

If the student receives allergy injections, can they receive them at Health Services, and if so, is their a fee?
Yes, they can receive their allergy injections but must send in an order from the allergist with instructions giving the medical staff of Health Services permission to do this. There is no charge for this service.

Allergy injections can only be given when a physician is on duty at Health Services. A physician is on duty every Monday and Thursday.
