Students & Families
Please see below regarding Medicaid/Peachcare for Kids' redetermination. This
On behalf of the Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS), we want to share with you the poster we sent to all school principals in Georgia earlier this summer on Medicaid/PeachCare for Kids® redetermination.
A digital copy of the "Your Health is Important" poster is in the link below so you can print out extra copies if needed (sized for 11"x17" paper).
Why is this important to your student families?
Georgia's public schools are a critical partner in helping raise awareness about redetermination because about 69% of Medicaid/PeachCare for Kids® members are children.
As a new school year begins throughout our state, DHS continues to work closely with a variety of partners to reach children and low-income families about Medicaid redetermination - through direct outreach, participation in back-to-school events, advertising, and other public awareness activities.
Your school can help to spread the word about Medicaid/PeachCare for Kids® redetermination in several ways:
1. Make sure that the poster is hung in a prominent place (like at the school's front desk, on a bulletin board, or in a clinic area).
2. Record a hold message for the school's phone system or send out a recorded message through the school's mass phone messaging service. See our attached Partner Toolkit for some suggested language to include.
3. Invite a representative from DHS to present at a PTA meeting or parent/teacher night. Here is a link to submit a speaker request.
4. Share a message about Medicaid redetermination in the school's newsletters, emails from teachers to parents, or other communications that is shared broadly.
5. Print copies of our coloring sheet or one-page flyer on Medicaid redetermination (both are available in multiple languages on staycovered.ga.gov). Give out these or other materials at registration tables, open-houses, or in any weekly send-home packets for students.
6. Make sure that your faculty and staff know to direct parents and students to staycovered.ga.gov to find out more about Medicaid redetermination.

Please let us know if you have any questions or if you have suggestions for additional opportunities to help spread the word in your communities.
