Florida's Medicaid Certified Match reimbursement rates are super low for nursing services. I think they are low in other states also. Rates for occupational, physical and speech therapy are much higher. Has there been any thought about a national push to increase these rates.
Michelle Rogge
32:26
Washington rates are ridiculous so it is not even worth the time to bill.

Ann has been an amazing leader for the school nurses in the state of Delaware!

Ann has definitely been a support for the school nurses in Delaware! She initiated a daily "office hour" for all of us to zoom into when we could to discuss scenarios that we were facing in our schools so we could work through it together.
Renee Lang (NASBE)
45:35
What a terrific idea - one our own organization (NASBE) started for our members as well. Thanks for sharing @Sally! and well done Ann!
Brandon Stratford

What might state leaders need to think about/do to avoid burnout among school nurses that might be working over the summer?
marjorie cole
48:37
State School Nurse Consultants are at the state agency table. We work across all agencies and influence policies. For example, we write the guidelines for the testing, screening, and standing orders for testing and vaccine administration.
Kate Scudero
49:43
When your state does not have a School Nurse Consultant (California) how do you get Health and Wellness spotlighted when it comes to allocating these funds?
marjorie cole
53:42
Kate, I just heard that the position for a state school nurse consultant was funded by your legislature. Check it out!
Louise Wilson
55:22
@Brandon I suggest that state leaders help school nurses and school administrators determine which tasks should be done by school nurse and which such as contact tracing could be done by others to take things off the school nurse's plate.
Brandon Stratford
56:26
Thanks Louise! That's great advice.
Louise Wilson
59:32
We have also found that it depends if the state consultant is part of the state department of education or the state department of health. I know that the collaborations between the two agencies have strengthened throughout the pandemic.
Louise Wilson
01:00:40
state school nurse consultants are not much different than school nurses- we have had to bridge the tow systems and interpret for each.
Emily Poland
01:01:10
The state consultant can help to elevate the role of local school nurses and make sure the needs/concerns are being heard at the state level.

Kansas has just recently acquired a school health clinical consultant which is our equivalent at this time for a school nurse consultant. The position is to "serve as the primary liason between KSDE and KSDE to facilitate and support shared decision making and activities related to school health, school nursing, and other health issues". At least one step towards a closer voice.

Given the importance of routine vaccination and the need for rapid uptake of COVID-19vaccines, the AAP supports coadministration of routine childhood and adolescentimmunizations with COVID-19 vaccines (or vaccination in the days before or after) forchildren and adolescents who are behind on or due for immunizations (based on theCDC/AAP Recommended Child and Adolescent Immunization Schedule) and/or atincreased risk from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Marjorie- it is how my state DOH is interpreting it. .in letter from DPH is The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) has also announced that COVID-19 vaccines can now be given without regard to timing of administration of other vaccines.
