Bowen Center Student Assistance Program (SAP)

Understanding your Student Assistance Plan (SAP)

The Student Assistance Plan is a benefit provided by your school. It provides two (2) prepaid counseling sessions at any Bowen Center outpatient location.

Access for all students

Access to quality mental health is important to your school corporation. All students corporation-wide are covered. There is no co-pay or preauthorization required.

Private and confidential

The school is not informed of your decision to access this program. At times the school corporation will assist you in making referrals. Privacy laws protect you and your child’s health information unless you give consent through written release of information.

Parent and/or Guardian consent to treat

Consent of the parent or guardian is required for children. After the initial two (2) prepaid SAP sessions you can decide whether to continue treatment at your own cost. You are not obligated to continue your child’s treatment beyond the prepaid SAP sessions. Bowen Center provides access to health navigation and feeassistance to those that qualify.

Summer coverage & Exclusions to coverage

You may access your prepaid SAP sessions during the summer vacation break. Medication management, psychological testing, inpatient care and any court ordered treatment are excluded from coverage.
