COVID 19 Resources
Its a trying time and our students and families may be experienceing more stress and anxiety. To access Health and Mental Health information please CLICK HERE. You will be forwarded to a SDP page with a list or resources.
In light of the current public health crisis and possible loss of employment and health insurance for your families, there might be a more significant interest in programs such as CHIP. Independence Blue Cross is proud to work with our community stakeholders to help protect its children’s health and well-being.
An important note is that the CHIP program does not have an annual enrollment period, so enrollment can occur any month, and it can be used as stop-gap coverage between employment.
Here are links to help your residents apply for the CHIP program and learn about other state benefits –

In addition, a family member can call the Independence CHIP Member Help Team to apply over the phone at 1-800-464-5437.
You can also reach out to the school counselor or the school nurse for additional health and mental health information.
