Illinois Receives Approval For School-Based Health Services Expansion

The Biden Administration is approving a proposal from Governor Pritzker’s office to expand the Illinois School-Based Health Services program.  The approval will bring in additional federal matching funds to provide covered services for Medicaid-enrolled students across the state, including critical youth mental health services.  The expansion will add to the list of currently-offered health care services available in Illinois schools to Medicaid-enrolled children.
