Back-to-school season is a tried and true time to reach and enroll eligible children (and parents) in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). It's also important for outreach organizations to establish and nurture relationships with school staff to ensure enrollment efforts continue into the school year. Schools are trusted messengers when it comes to children's well-being, and integrating enrollment services into schools is key to getting children covered. This webinar covers effective strategies for outreach and enrollment during back-to-school time and beyond to identify ways to reach more families through school activities. Speakers from across the country share successful back-to-school outreach strategies and provide tips for how to develop strong enrollment programs with local school systems.
IMPORTANT: Look for your child’s Medicaid or CHIP renewal in the mail, complete it and mail it back immediately. They may be covered even if you’re not! Between now and April 2024, every child on Medicaid or CHIP will need to go through a renewal process. Keep your child covered and healthy. Complete the renewal as soon as you get it in the mail! Go to Medicaid.gov/renewals to find contact information for your state Medicaid office.
