School-Based and Community Health Program
Providing care to children and young adults during the COVID-19 crisis
Henry Ford Health System’s School-Based and Community Health Program provides primary care and behavioral health services to children ages 5-21 regardless of health insurance coverage or ability to pay. Our clinics are located within more than a dozen schools in Detroit, Lincoln Park, and Macomb County, one community location,as well as a mobile medical unit that travels to various locations.

What if I don’t have health insurance?
Our health centers accept all Medicaid and private insurance plans. You will not be turned away if you do not have health insurance coverage or are unable to pay. No patient will ever receive a bill for the services provided at our School-Based Health and Community Health centers.
For minor patients to obtain general health services at any of our health centers, a signed consent form must be completed by a parent or legal guardian. Additionally, specific services related to behavioral health, sexual health, and substance use treatment are available to minors without parental consent under Michigan’s Minor Consent Laws.
