As a key drafter of last year's groundbreaking legislation to expand the State Childrens' Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), I was eager to support Legislative Bill 1106. This bill changes Nebraska's Medicaid statutes to allow school-based health centers to provide treatment to Medicaid-eligible children directly in school. By bringing health care to students who need it, schools can reduce absenteeism, keep kids engaged in school, and more effectively manage chronic childhood illnesses, such as asthma. The bill also allows Nebraska to quality for additional federal Medicaid matching funds.
