Health care reform has provided millions more people access to health insurance coverage, through both an expansion of public programs, like Medi-Cal, and the establishment of Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange, which provides subsidies to low- and moderate-income Californians to help them purchase coverage.
School-based health centers (SBHCs) provide students and families with information about the health care coverage that is available to them. People are most likely to be receptive to information about health insurance when they are in a comfortable and familiar location – particularly, one where they already receive health care services.
Help Kids & Families Get Connected
