  • FREE Medical and Dental Care
    The Ronald McDonald Care Unit is starting a new program to bring FREE Mobile Care Units directly to schools in El Paso County. They will be providing dental and medical services to all children under 21 years of age at no cost to the families. The Unit will accept insurance and Medicaid. If Medicaid or private health insurance denies the claim, then Peak Vista Community Health Centers will cover the cost and so there will be no charge families for the services. Parents need to accompany children under the age of 18 to the Unit. More information regarding services and dates are available on the Ronald McDonald Care Unit flyer.
