This Healthy Students Promising Futures Learning Collaborative case study highlights Michigan's work to leverage the reversal of free care policy to expand the state's school-based Medicaid program.
As of October 2019, school districts in Michigan are able to seek Medicaid reimbursement for services provided to all Medicaid-enrolled students (not only for health services included in a student's Individualized Education Program). This change presents an important opportunity to expand access to and resources for school health services, particularly behavioral health services.
This case study provides an overview of the partnership between Grand Rapids Schools and Spectrum Health to improve educational and health outcomes for students through Spectrum's School Health Program.
