Student Health Forms for 2019-2020

 

In order to deliver the best care for your Choate student, we ask that you provide updated health information each year. Detailed instructions for accessing forms and submitting information are available below. Please follow the step-by-step process for completing 2019-2020 student health forms by no later than August 1.

 

STEP 1

Login to the Choate Health Services Portal

Please log in to the Choate Health Services Portal using your Parents Portal username and password. Once logged in, select your student’s name and proceed to the Health Services Portal homepage for instructions on form completion.

STEP 2

Complete online health forms and print forms for providers

Returning Students

Complete the following online forms:

  • Returning Student Health Form
  • Insurance Information Form (if your coverage has changed)
  • Insurance Waiver

STEP 3

Complete medication forms, as needed.

If your child takes prescription medication, please pay close attention to the major school rule regarding prescription medications. For all medications prescribed for your child, even if for a short time, you must complete an Authorization for the Administration of Medication Form and register the medicine with Choate Health Services. Arrangements will be made with our medical director for administration and prescription refills. If your child is taking a controlled medication, such as a stimulant for ADHD, please also complete the Controlled Medication Supplemental Form.

STEP 4

Provide proof of insurance

All students must have proof of health insurance coverage and maintain such coverage while enrolled at Choate. We ask parents or guardians to complete the Insurance Information Form (unless returning student coverage is unchanged), to provide a front and back copy of your insurance card, and to sign an Insurance Waiver. In signing the waiver, a parent or guardian acknowledges responsibility for health care costs or fees incurred by students while enrolled at Choate and not otherwise covered by a health insurance policy.

International students without coverage through a U.S. based insurance company must enroll in the Choate-sponsored insurance plan through Student Health Insurance Protection.

Unfortunately, we are no longer able to offer an insurance policy for domestic students for reasons reviewed in our important message about health insurance. ‌
 

STEP 5

Upload forms

Upload forms completed by providers/prescribers, a copy of the front and back of your insurance card, and any additional medical records through the Uploads page on the Health Services Portal by following these steps:

  1. Check to see that your child’s name and birthdate are on all documents
  2. Identify the document you are uploading using the drop-down list
  3. Browse to and select your file
