School-Based Health Centers
School-based health centers are here, heavily funded and rapidly expanding thanks to a federal agenda funneling millions of grant dollars to states like Georgia. These full-service, profit-based centers offer medical, behavioral and psychological treatment to students. They are intended to be the "medical home" for your child, billing your insurance, including Medicaid, for services rendered. Currently, there is no regulation of these centers and it appears that parents are being given a single pre-consent form that serves as blanket consent for any and all services.
Your child's school could soon be prescribing drugs, administering vaccines, providing mental health counseling and a host of other services without your knowledge and using a single form that you signed giving blanket consent for treatment at a School-Based Health Center.

Notice of Non-Consent
As a parent, you may choose not to consent to school-based health centers. Click here for an example of what Notice of Non-Consent might look like. Please feel free to use any or all of it, making sure to adapt it to your family’s unique circumstances. For example, if you wish to authorize any specific healthcare beyond first aid and emergency treatment, add that information in numbers (2) and (5) of the sample document.
