School Sports Physicals
2019 School Physicals
April 10, 2019
Dear Athletic Directors, Principals, & Parents,
From May 1 through August 1, 2019, we will be offering school physicals for $49 with a scheduled school physical appointment. Parents must ask for the school physical rate. The physical includes a free urine protein and urine glucose screening. Normally these physicals are well over $200. We will accept insurance and co-pays. Immunizations and/or additional services – medication refills, injury evaluations, acute problems (i.e. sore throat, swimmer’s ear, rashes, etc.) will be charged at the discretion of your physician.
This special rate does not include college, kindergarten, Head Start, scouts, or any other types of physicals.
- Bring completed “History Form”. A consent form needs to be signed for the clinic to perform the physical. If a parent won’t be at the appointment, consent form can be picked up, signed and brought to the appointment.
- Bring a first-morning urine sample, if not possible, any sample is fine. To prevent unnecessary recheck drink plenty of fluid 48 hours before the sample is taken. We can collect the samples at the appointment.
- The student must bring their immunization records. This is an excellent time to get caught up on immunizations. 7th grade through 12th grade are ages to receive those vaccines required for school participation and those vaccines recommended by the CDC. Immunizations are not included in the $49 rate. Tetanus, Meningitis and HPV vaccines are available at our clinics. Most insurances cover vaccines under preventative care at 100%. If you do not have insurance or are underinsured Dinklage Medical Clinic is now a Vaccine For Children site, as well as Northeast Community Action (800) 445-2505 and the Elkhorn Logan Valley Public Health Department (402) 529-2233; please call for information and schedules. Parents that won’t be at the appointment requiring immunizations need to contact the clinic and sign a permission form.
- Girls are reminded not to wear sports bras, they impede the scoliosis check.
- Students who wear glasses or contacts need to bring/wear to the appointment for the eye exam.
Please speak with us or stop in to clarify any information or to pick up any NSAA necessary forms.
At the end of each physical, the student will be given a “Consent to Participate” and “Physical” form. Because of HIPPA, the parent decides what information will be shared with the schools beyond the consent form. We strongly encourage parents to share the entire physical form with the school in the interest of the health of your child. Particularly if your child has health concerns that the school nurse and/or coaches should be aware of.
Have a great 2019-2020 school year!
