Back-to-School Resources

Make sure that all children start the school year off right by ensuring that parents know how to get health coverage for their children with these resources:

1. A back-to-school checklist for parents to help kids stay healthy. This resource was developed with the 100% Campaign:

2. Helpful information on immunizations needed for back-to-school and throughout the year:

3. Information schools and child-care providers can use to help parents, teachers, and school and child-care employees learn about new health care coverage options. These materials were developed with The Children’s Partnership:

4. Information on Kaiser Permanente’s Child Health Plan, which offers coverage to children in Kaiser’s Northern California service area who are not eligible for government health coverage — such as Medi-Cal or California Children’s Services (CCS) — or health coverage that is paid for, in any part, by an employer. Clinics that support application assistance for KP Child Health should submit applications for coverage before November 22 to ensure continuous coverage through 2014 as the program transitions to become compliant with the Affordable Care Act.

Please share these resources with families as the school year begins!
