Studies have shown that academic performance and quality health care go hand in hand. Here’s how we can help your family build a healthy school year!
Studies have shown that academic performance and quality health care go hand in hand. When children get routine health care, immunizations, check-ups, eye exams, dental exams, and mental health services, they are more prepared to fully participate in school and after-school activities like clubs and sports. They also miss fewer classes.
But quality health care doesn’t just benefit students. Fewer missed days of school due to illness also means fewer missed days of work for parents.
Luckily, CCI is here to help.
Having health coverage is critical for children to thrive at school and in life. Medicaid and CHIP cover emergency doctor and hospital visits, prescriptions, and immunizations for children and teens. Other benefits include check-ups and regular doctor visits, dental visits, mental and behavioral health services, eye exams, and other care children and teens may need.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many children missed routine well-child care and related immunizations. It is important that children and teens stay up to date on their scheduled immunizations to protect themselves and their communities from preventable diseases and severe illness.
CCI believes in whole-person, patient-centered care. That’s why nutrition is an important aspect of what we do.
