Frequently Asked Questions
Who can use the clinics? All enrolled students at RISD, all faculty and staff employed by RISD.
Why offer school-based clinics? The clinics are being placed at the school campuses as part of Little River Healthcare’s plan to increase availability of healthcare in the community. They will be a convenience for the parents, faculty and staff and will also reduce the number of hours/days that a student is taken out of class to visit an off site clinic.
When are the clinics open? Mon—Fri 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. See each campus for times that the provider is on campus. The provider will always be available by phone to the school nurse should she be needed at a campus during a non-scheduled time.
Will my insurance be billed? For those students with health insurance, your insurance plan will be billed for the office visit and any procedures performed. Parental authorization will be needed before the patient is seen by the LRHC provider.
How do you get in to see the provider? Students must first visit the school nurse who will determine if they need to see the provider. Faculty and Staff can walk in during times the provider is on campus or call to make an appointment ahead of time.
Will parents be informed before the student sees the provider? Parents of students who are being referred to the provider will be notified by the school nurse that the student needs to be removed from school and that the on-location clinic option is available. The provider in the clinic will also contact the parent to verify they have authorization.
