Medicaid Cuts Threaten Student Learning, School District Finances

The Georgia Budget and Policy Institute has released their analysis of the effect of projected cuts to Medicaid under AHCA.   Click here to read.

"Children served by Medicaid are from low-income and working-poor families. They face more health risks than children from families with higher incomes. Taking away health care benefits and reducing services available could force students to miss more class and fall behind in school.

Schools in Georgia would also feel the strain from Medicaid cuts, as many districts would lose money used to cover services special education students need, such as speech therapy, occupational therapy and medical equipment."
