Committed to advancing health care access in schools and helping ensure the health and academic success of youth statewide.

Policy and Resource Development

Our policy efforts include:

  • Working with state and local health officials to explore opportunities for government funding for school-based health care.
  • Creating new partnerships with other health and public organizations to garner their support for school-based health care and leverage resources.
  • Working with foundations, businesses, government entities, individuals and other funders to gain support, create funding opportunities and build financial sustainability for school-based health centers.
  • Collaborating with third party payers to set up billing systems so that school-based health centers can be reimbursed for the services they provide.

Our current focus are is confidentiality in billing. By collaborating with a variety of stakeholder organizations and working with the Office of the Insurance Commissioner, the Alliance's work has been critical to creating a new rule to protect health information. For more information, see R 2013-11. A proposed rule is expect in early 2014. To get involved, contact mikew@schoolhealthcare.org.
