School-Based Health Centers Included in the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)

The inclusion of a definition of school-based health centers in the reauthorized SCHIP legislation was the first time ever that school-based health centers have been included in a federal health insurance reimbursement program. The validation of school-based health centers as providers of SCHIP covered services empowers school-based health centers to seek provider status in their states’ SCHIP programs and opens the door for emerging opportunities for recognition and reimbursement from the federal government.
The School Community Health Alliance of Michigan and NASBHC worked with Sen. Stabenow (D-MI) to include school-based health centers in SCHIP.
