It is important to note that this bill is very similar to the Health Care Reform Bill that was recently passed in the US House of Representatives.  The Save Medicaid in Schools Coalition is very concerned that these bills will have a significant negative effective on children’s health care services for a number of reasons including the proposed changes in Medicaid financing.

The Save Medicaid In Schools Coalition has sent a letter to the US House and Senate leadership expressing their concerns in regards to the proposed bills.  This letter can be found on the AASA, The Schools Superintendents Association website at:
