Sports physicals for students now available at The University of Kansas Health System Pawnee Valley Campus
The University of Kansas Health System Pawnee Valley Campus once again is providing sports physicals for Fort Larned and Pawnee Heights school districts.
The physicals will be conducted differently this year due to COVID-19 and the need for extra safety measures associated with the pandemic. Pawnee Valley Campus asks parents and guardians to call the family medicine team at 620-804-6007 to schedule their child for a comprehensive well-child exam. In addition to the sports physical, the exam will address any necessary vaccinations and other medical needs.
If a child has already received their well-child exam in the past 12 months, parents may still schedule a sports physical. A small fee for this service is required, and insurance will not be billed since a comprehensive exam has already been conducted.
Most insurance companies recognize the importance of annual well-child exams as a preventive health service and will provide coverage for these visits. Check with your insurance company regarding their policy on well-child exams. If your child does not have wellness benefits or you need financial assistance, notify the family medicine care team when you schedule the appointment.
A sports physical form should be filled out before the exam. Get the form here: kshsaa.org/public/pdf/form-ppe.pdf
