FREE Medical and Dental Care
The Ronald McDonald Care Unit has begun a new program of bringing their FREE Mobile Care Units directly to schools in El Paso County providing dental and medical services to all children under 21 years of age. These services will be at no cost to the families. The Unit will take insurance and Medicaid, but if for any reason Medicaid or private health insurance would deny the claim, then Peak Vista Community Health Centers will cover the cost and there will be no charge to the families. Parents will need to accompany children under 18 to the unit.
