Mission

Objectives
The department’s objectives are to provide preventative health measures for all residents of Kingman County, including, but not limited to:
  • Disease investigation
  • Early intervention health screening
  • Family planning and well-woman information and services
  • Immunizations
  • Information and education in caring for infants and children
  • Licensure of day care providers
  • Nutritional information and/or assistance
  • Travel health recommendations
  • Well-person health assessments

Fees
Fees vary depending on the service but most are based on a sliding fee scale. Medicaid, BCBS, and other insurances are billed for covered services.

No one is refused services due to inability to pay.

    Patient Portal
    The Kingman County Health Department is excited to provide an electronic medical management program that will help boost efficient healthcare service delivery. This system, AthenaHealth, includes improved communication between Health Department clients and staff through the AthenaHealth Online Patient Portal.

    Once a client creates an account and receives a password, that person will be able to contact KCHD anytime and will be able to:
    • Change address or contact information
    • Leave messages for KCHD staff
    • Request medication refills
    • Schedule or change appointments
    • View testing results
    Client satisfaction increases when concerns are addressed as they arise.
