Making an Impact

Program coordinators are making a difference in their districts and the lives of the students and families they serve. Here are just a few impact and success stories from our coordinator community.

National Spotlight: San Diego USD

Michelle Bell, a longtime member of our school Medicaid billing community, was featured in an article by Healthy Schools Campaign about the impact of school health services on the students in San Diego Unified School District.

We’re proud to work alongside Michelle, and SDUSD’s school Medicaid coordinators (Karen Cloutman, Patrice Breslow, and Katen Tinker, pictured here!), and grateful for the attention she brings to the importance of school health services and programs on a daily basis.

Hiring School Nurses

This past year, Director of Student Services at Savanna School District, Hipolito Murillo, was able to hire a part-time School Readiness School Nurse and a full-time position with the assistance of SMAA and LEA Billing program reimbursements.

“This directly and indirectly assisted our students and staff in our two School Nurses being able to better serve our school community with better case management and direct services.”

We can’t think of a better use of SMAA and LEA Billing funds!

Streamlining & Maximizing

LEA Billing Coordinators, Toni McCallum (pictured) and Sarah Torres, successfully set up a secure file transfer protocol (SFTP) with Paradigm to automate their data sharing process with Paradigm and save valuable time.

Toni and Sarah also recently got their nurses to start documenting their health service assessments in Paradigm’s Student Health Network, which makes billing and reporting a breeze. Great work, ladies!

Doing Your Part

At our last School Medicaid Collaborative Conference, coordinators shared why they’re committed to building the strongest MAA and LEA Billing programs for their districts (and they had fun doing it!).
