Momentum for Expanding School Medicaid: What to Expect in 2023
Thursday, Feb. 9 | 1 p.m. CT
| Register

Backed with major investments from Congress and the Biden administration, Medicaid is gaining ground as a key funding source for school health services. This year, we expect to see new federal guidance (revising policies that have not been updated in almost 20 years), the launch of a school Medicaid technical assistance center, and $50 million in state grants. Join Healthy Schools Campaign, Georgetown Center for Children and Families and Community Catalyst in conversation with former CMS Administrator Vikki Wachino as we explain the opportunities – and steps involved – to expanding school Medicaid.

How States Leverage Funding for School Health Services
Thursday, March 2 | 1 p.m. CT

Schools have a critical need for federal resources to support student health, especially mental health. Since 2014, states have had the option to draw down additional federal Medicaid funds and reinvest in expanding school health services. This webinar will explain how 17 states so far are leveraging this new funding and how other states can get started. Attendees will also learn how states are increasing the types of school health providers eligible for Medicaid reimbursement.

Organizing for Student Health and Wellbeing
Thursday, April 6 | 1 p.m. CT

From school nurses and behavioral health providers to parents and public health advocates, everyone has a role to play in ensuring schools are positioned to support children’s health. Join us to learn how school districts across the country are leveraging additional Medicaid funds to expand services and access – and how you can advocate for schools in your state.
