Call to Action: Protect Medicaid Funding in Schools

June 13, 2017

As the U.S. Senate moves forward with considering its version of healthcare reform legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare," the NYSSBA, in partnership with the National School Boards Association (NSBA) urges local school board members to contact their U.S. Senators and urge them to oppose legislation or provisions that place arbitrary caps on how much Medicaid funding a child receives.

Take Action Now

Medicaid funding is directly related to a school's ability to assist students by providing access to quality healthcare.

Contact your U.S. Senators and ask them to protect this funding.

Visit the NYSSBA Online Action Center to access letters to legislators on this and other NYSSBA priority bills.
