"We envision the day when public policy values children's health as essential to learning."
The National Alliance for Medicaid in Education, Inc. (NAME) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was created in response to a need for a national forum to address the complexities and challenges of Medicaid reimbursement programs in school settings.
NAME facilitates a member network comprised mostly of volunteers to share information about Medicaid in Education, and is the only organization of its kind. NAME's membership is primarily composed of professionals from the nation's public school districts, state Medicaid agencies and state education agencies who are involved in administration of Medicaid claiming for school-based services. Other members are those with an interest in the Medicaid in Education field such as businesses, consulting firms, non-profit organizations and federal agencies.
NAME collaborates with key Federal agencies: the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), and other partners and stakeholders, to develop and support public policies that value children's health and recognize it as essential to learning.
NAME draws on the expertise of highly informed and specialized sources from around the country at federal, state and local levels, as well as the private sector.
Voting Members are individuals employed or contracted by a state Medicaid agency, state education agency or local education agency who have responsibility for administering the Medicaid administrative claiming or direct billing of school-based health related special education or free care services provided by public schools to students.
Associate Members are non-voting and include individuals from an agency/organization or company that provides services/support for school-based health care, special education or Medicaid in Education, or function as a Medicaid billing agent.

Taking Action to Promote Health Equity–Lessons from The California Endowment’s Building Healthy Communities Project
A four-part Web Forum series called Taking Action to Promote Health Equity—Using the Lessons from Cutting-Edge Practices to Improve Health and Well Being. Program speakers will share their lessons learned through practice and experiences that are transferable to diverse community settings—large or small, urban or rural—and with substantial or minimal resources. And while a few of the examples may be familiar, the Web Forum series will feature excellent work that has not received much national attention.
The NAME Annual Conference is a national forum for professionals working in education and/or health care and related fields. The conference provides a unique opportunity to network with colleagues and similar professionals in the field of school-based health at the local, state and federal levels.
Our national conference provides an opportunity for professional development with the latest information in research, experience and best practices for Medicaid in Education.
