On July 14, NAME representatives had the opportunity to meet with Donna Cohen Ross, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Director of Enrollment Initiatives and Stakeholder Engagement.  
Recognizing that schools are crucial partners in the national campaign to help students and families:

  •     understand health coverage options,
  •     enroll and retain coverage
  •     access health care,   

Ms. Cohen Ross shared national “Insure Kids Now” campaign information to help you help students.  The campaign provides links to stay informed of upcoming activities, Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) outreach materials that CMS can customize for your needs, short videos, and much more.
 
Visit InsureKidsNow.gov for more details and comprehensive information on Medicaid and CHIP coverage for school-age children.
