    How can students use the Denny School-base Health Center?

    Register! Any student enrolled at Denny International Middle School can be seen by our providers by having a parent or guardian complete and sign the registration forms and return them to the health center. They can either be delivered by the student or parent, or placed in a secure envelope and mailed to the health center's address (listed above). Printed copies of the registration forms are also available in the health center. Under state law, youth may independently access some health care without parental consent, including reproductive health and mental health services.

    For Registration Forms:


    How do I make an Appointment?

    Call 206-923-2809 or come see us in the health center.

    Before or after school appointments are available. "Request to Report" slips are given for appointments during school. We will do everything possible to schedule or reschedule so students miss as little class time as possible. Students may also visit the clinic without an appointment by getting a pass from their teacher or when referred by the school nurse.

    When the school based health centers are closed, students are encouraged to call another Neighborcare Health clinic. The closest to Denny International School-Based Health Center is our High Point Medical and Dental Clinic, 206-461-6950. Neighborcare Health has additional clinic sites in the Seattle area where students are welcome as well.


    What is the cost?

    No student will be denied services due to inability to pay. Because the Families and Education Levy covers only a portion of the cost to operate the Denny SBHC, we will bill insurance companies when possible.

    For students on Medicaid or a public insurance plan, we bill all services directly and the student / family will have no out-of-pocket expense. For students with private insurance, it is possible that parents / guardians may have some out-of-pocket cost, depending on the type of services and on the private insurance company’s coverage. Not all services are subject to insurance company policies, so please call if you would like more information.

    Neighborcare Health can assist uninsured or under-insured students and their families with completing insurance enrollment paperwork. All you need to do is indicate that you have no insurance under the insurance section of the registration form and we will follow up with you. You can also call the school-based health center for more information or email sbhceligibility@neighborcare.org.
