The Health Center at APW Elementary School
The School Based Health Center has been serving the health care needs of enrolled Elementary School students since 2012. The center is a state funded health care facility and is an extension of ConnextCare, DBA for Nothern Oswego County Health Services, Inc.
All students who attend the APW Elementary School are eligible for this program. There are no out of pocket expenses for services performed at the School Based Health Center. If the enrolled student has health insurance, it will be billed directly. Any co-pay or deductible will be covered by the School Based Health Center Program, to again, avoid an out of pocket expense for the parent or guardian. Services performed outside of the health center, such as lab testing, will be billed directly by the outside agency.
