BSSP's slogan has been, for many years, "Healthy Employees Supported by Quality, Well-Managed Programs." On January 30, 2014, BSSP launched another significant benefit in support of that statement: The Butte Schools Health and Wellness Center.
The Health and Wellness Centers (HWCs) are dedicated to providing urgent, primary and preventive care solely to employees, retirees and family members covered by one of BSSP's medical plans. Our care team brings many years of experience to help you on your health journey.
HWC's COVID-10 Response
The staff at your Health and Wellness Centers are committed to providing the best care for you and your family during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. To minimize the spread of COVID-19 and limit exposure for patients and staff, we offer telephone appointments when appropriate. Office appointments are also available as needed, although the wearing of a mask is required within the Health and Wellness Center at all times.
As always, call Chico (530-879-7582) or Oroville (530-532-5918) to schedule an appointment.
The HWC will call you at the time of your scheduled appointment. A phone appointment is preferred for TB assessments or refills of well-established medications prescribed or dispensed from the HWC. Telephone appointments are also available for many acute or episodic conditions not requiring a physical examination.
Copays are as follows:
With the increased volume associated with COVID testing, results on labs requested by both HWC and outside providers may be delayed.
The HWC Dispensary can dispense those medications which are included in the formulary and prescribed by the HWC provider at the time of your visit. Now, there's no need to stop at the pharmacy or request mail order for many of your prescription needs. The HWC Dispensary is not a traditional "pharmacy" and cannot fill prescriptions from an outside provider. The HWC provider may dispense maintenance medications, if in the formulary, which have been previously prescribed by an outside provider after an office visit with the HWC provider.
Generic medications included on the formulary are available at a $4 copayment; the copayment for brand name medications is $8. For members covered under an HSA plan, medications dispensed are included within the $25 office visit charge.
NOTE: In order to comply with all regulations set forth by the Medical Board and Board of Pharmacy, the patient must be seen by the Healthstat Provider before drugs are dispensed.
