NYSBHA Advocacy Alert July 2020


Urgent Action Alert!

Call Your State Legislators to Urge Passage of a Permanent Medicaid Managed
Care Carve-Out for School-Based Health Centers!

Legislation is introduced in both houses of the State Legislature to enact a permanent Medicaid Managed Care Carve-Out for School-Based Health Centers (SBHC). SBHCs are scheduled to be carved-in to the Medicaid Managed Care Program in January, 2021. The permanent carve-out legislation is critically important for the financial survival of SBHCs.

During the week of July 20-24, please call your State Senate and Assembly representatives in their district offices. Ask them to co-sponsor this bill and urge that it be passed before the Legislature adjourns the 2020 Legislative Session. Click here to find your state legislators on NYSBHA’s SBHC match list toward the bottom of our advocacy page and

for talking points.

Thank you for supporting our SBHCs!
