Cardiovascular Screenings to Be Offered to 7th-12th Grade Students

See the letter below from CAPPO Health explaining the cardiovascular screenings they will be offering to our student athletes (and any student interested) on December 11th & 12th!

Beebe High School is taking an extra step to protect your child by providing cardiovascular testing for students aged 12-25 on school grounds on December 11th and 12th, 2019.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is caused by an abnormality in the heart's electrical system or structure that abruptly stops the heartbeat. It is the leading cause of death on school campuses. According to the American Heart Association, every 3 days a young athlete dies from Sudden Cardiac Arrest in the US. In 80% of the cases, there are no warning signs or symptoms leading up to a cardiac arrest.

CAPPO Health will perform EKGs and echocardiograms to detect heart conditions that can put your child at risk and vascular ultrasounds to identify vascular conditions common to athletes (such as blood clots). All tests are non-invasive, and the privacy of your child is maintained.

To learn more and register for the testing, please visit: http://go.cappohealth.com/fmi/webd/Beebe%20High%20School

Once have chosen your appointment time, please visit: www.cappohealth.com and click on "HS Registration" at the top of the page to complete your registration paperwork.

There are no upfront costs for this testing. CAPPO Health will bill your health insurance, accepting what your carrier deems usual and customary. As required by law, CAPPO will bill for any deductible or coinsurance owed, if applicable. There are a number of circumstances that would waive any balance due for this testing (including saving for college). Please be aware that if you have an HSA, FSA, or HRA account, funds may automatically be deducted if a balance is due. We encourage you to call us at (833) 244-5700 to verify your benefits or to answer any questions you have about the billing process.

Together with Beebe High School, we look forward to contributing to the health and safety of your athlete! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Thank you,

Jamie Chahalis
