Are appointments needed?

Yes, however a limited number of appointments are available for "walk ins."

 

What do services cost?

Services are based on Fee for Service, subject to ability to pay. Most insurance carriers are accepted.  No one will be turned away for inability to pay and donations are always appreciated.

 

Who is on staff?

Lincoln Community School Based Health Centers provide licensed professional providers such as Nurse Practitioners, Registered Community Health Nurses, and Mental Health Therapists. Medical oversight is provided by the Medical Director of the Lincoln Community Health Center. Certified Medical Assistants and Health Services Advocates provide support and assistance.

 

Who will see the student's medical records?

Health center services are private and confidential. Health center records will not become part of a student’s school record and information cannot be shared with school personnel without written consent.

All services are confidential, however, if it is felt that a student is in danger of hurting themselves or others (OAR 309-33-200), or if abuse of any kind is suspected (ORS 419B-010; 419B015) staff are required by law to report this information. Animal bites and certain communicable diseases must also be reported (ORS 433-004;OAR33-14-000).

 

How do I access care when school is not in session?

During summer break and non-school days, appointments are available at Lincoln Community Health Center locations in Newport and Lincoln City. After graduation, students may continue care at Lincoln Community Health Centers. Call (541) 265-4947 for an appointment.
