East Valley Community Health Center
East Valley holds public and private contracts with many funding sources, which allow them to provide medical services at very low cost to qualifying individuals. Fees for their services are on a sliding scale, but no one is turned away because of inability to pay. East Valley accepts all public health insurance, such as MediCal (also known as Medicaid), Medicare, and Healthy Families (also known as SHIP), as well as private health insurance such as Blue Cross/Blue Shield, among others. Most importantly, if you or your family are not covered by any health insurance plan, East Valley will provide services to you according to your ability to pay. East Valley is a medical home for people who cannot be seen or cared for anywhere else.

Care Solace for all Staff and Students/Families.
The attached Care Solace flyer is on our BUSD social media and district website. This free 24/7, 365 days service is purchased by our district for both BUSD Staff and BUSD Parents/Students. The Care Solace service is free, and Care Solace will hand the caller off to a provider that may or may not charge a fee. The caller can make that decision to go forward, and the Care Solace person will guide them along the way.  
Anyone in our district can call in to Care Solace and they will receive assistance.  Again, Care Solace does not provide the counseling/therapy, but they do a warm handoff with the parent, to the provider.  This service has not replaced our EASE program for employees. We still have that available.
