Steps to make use of this service
If you would like your child to receive medical services at Ranger Clinic, please complete and sign the consent form and return to the main office at Park High School. Students cannot be seen in the health clinic until a signed consent form has been returned. Ranger Clinic bills private insurance, Medicaid, and Healthy Montana Kids. No child is denied services due to inability to pay. If you have a family medical provider, you can still use the Ranger Clinic. You may find it convenient for your child to get medical care at Ranger Clinic if they get sick or injured at school.
Your child’s medical information will be treated with strict confidentiality. If you would like the staff of Ranger Clinic to discuss your child’s condition with the school, you must complete the authorization part of the form. Otherwise, it is your responsibility to notify the school of any medications, allergies, or medical problems that may affect your child during the school day. By signing the authorization form, you are giving Ranger Clinic and the school nurse permission to share medical information regarding your student’s medical condition on an as-needed basis.
Scheduling is done through the Park High school nurse, who can be reached at 406.222.0448, ext 210—or by calling Livingston HealthCare at 406.222.3541.
