About

You don't need to change your primary care clinic or provider in order to utilize Madigan’s school based health clinics. These clinics are designed to enhance your teen's ability to access care during their busy school year. School clinics start the first week of September. With Madigan’s School Based Health System clinics in 10 area schools, military teenagers with TRICARE Prime insurance can get care in their school clinics one day a week.

Students can be seen for acute, minor and chronic illnesses, sports physicals, immunizations and to manage long-term medications such as those for asthma and allergies. In addition, students can access counseling for behavioral health concerns, as well as laboratory and basic pharmacy services. If you attend one of these schools listed below, regardless of which Madigan primary care clinic in which you are currently enrolled, you may make an appointment with a Madigan School Based Health Clinic.
