A health and wellness benefit for employees, students, and families
The health and safety of our community has been at the center of our decision making these past several months, as we have developed our response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In continued efforts to provide our community with the best available resources, PBS is excited to announce its new partnership with One Medical and its “Healthy Together” program. This program is an important protective layer on top of the safety measures we have already implemented to ensure that we are doing everything we can to protect the health of our community, on- or off-campus. One Medical’s benefits are available now and will continue throughout the 2020-21 school year.
Below, please find a series of frequently asked questions to help orient you to One Medical’s benefits, as well as to a number of our other health and wellness policies. As the conditions for reopening continue to develop and change, we will be updating as necessary.
Parents, please direct additional questions about this partnership to Student Wellness Manager Casey Powell or the One Medical team. Employees, your internal contact for the One Medical partnership is Human Resources Coordinator Raveena Martin.
