WEBINAR: How States Leverage Funding for School Health Services

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, one in a series by the Healthy Schools Campaign, Georgetown Center for Children and Families and Community Catalyst, 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.
