Medicaid in Schools

Through our efforts to increase access to health coverage for low-income children and families in Texas, we have identified the need to expand school-based efforts to connect students to health coverage as well as access to school-based health services. Ensuring that eligible students are enrolled in Medicaid (or CHIP) and that their health care needs are met effectively at school, where they spend most of their day, will have far-reaching, positive benefits both for individual Texans and communities across our state. 

CDF-TX created Medicaid in Schools – a report that provides recommendations for supporting schools to expand the delivery of health care services as well as outreach and enrollment facilitation activities.
