Strengthening School-Based Health Centers in Maryland: A Study of Funding and Access Issues

November 30, 2007

On behalf of the Maryland Community Health Resources Commission, The Hilltop Institute (as the Center for Health Program Development and Management) conducted a study of funding and access issues that have an impact on the financial viability and continued growth of Maryland’s school-based health centers (SBHCs). The legislation establishing the Commission—the Community Health Care Access and Safety Net Act of 2005—required that the study be carried out. The study examined SBHC financing, assessed barriers to reimbursement, and recommended directions the Commission might pursue to expand access to SBHCs, promote increased reimbursement, and further develop the infrastructure and stabilize the financing of SBHCs.
