South Carolina Covering Kids & Families Liaison Initiative
The South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA) commits to participating in all CKF communications activities, including Back to School, and corporate and organizational partnership opportunities. Schools continue to be one of our most effective partners for outreach. We look forward to continuing our relationships with the State Department of Education, local districts and schools to identify and enroll eligible children in the Partners for Healthy Children/Medicaid program in South Carolina. Local and national corporate and organizational partnerships have enabled us to reach many more families on a day-to-day basis. Partnerships with businesses and organizations such as CVS Pharmacy, SC Association of School Administrators, SC School Nurse Association, WIS TV, and local hospitals have proved successful in helping to spread the word about the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). SCHA also commits to attend CKF annual and/or regional meetings with one or two key stakeholders from South Carolina engaged in child health coverage. Information gathered from these meetings will be disseminated to state level policymakers, enrollment facilitators, advocacy, business and faith communities and other key stakeholders engaged in child health coverage issues. Additionally, SCHA commits to convene an annual meeting of key stakeholders and constituents including state level policymakers, enrollment facilitators, advocacy, business and faith communities and other key stakeholders engaged in child health coverage issues. The one day meeting will host national, state and local speakers presenting on the issues of health care coverage for uninsured children and existing barriers to coverage. A report on the highlights and outcome of the meeting will be developed and disseminated to participants, key stakeholders unable to attend, other interested parties and news media.
