No- or Low-Cost Health Care
Did you know ALL students attending Value Schools, regardless of legal status or position, are eligible for no- or low-cost health care through Medi-Cal and Covered California? And since 2015, all children with Medi-Cal and Covered California health coverage have dental coverage, too!
Value Schools does not discriminate against a pupil who does not have health care coverage or use any information relating to a pupil’s health care coverage or interest in learning about health care coverage in any manner that would bring harm to the pupil or the pupil’s family.
