OSHSA

Ohio School Health Services Association

Our Vision

All school districts in Ohio are operating a successful, transparent, efficient, and effective Medicaid in Schools Program for the measurable benefits of their students. Additionally, OSHSA is dedicated to the growth and success of school-based health programs and services that contribute to both the well-being and achievement of their respective student bodies.

Our Mission

The efforts of several people impacting and being impacted by the Medicaid Schools Program (MSP) has led to the formation and activation of the Ohio Schools Health Services Association (OSHSA). OSHSA resulted from a handful people operating in the MSP space in differing capacities deliberately restructuring and reconstituting the Ohio Alliance for Medicaid in Education (OAME), an existing non-profit organization, inclusive of changing the composition of the Board of Directors.
