Schools and Health Coverage

CCHI-authored bill, AB 2706 (Hernandez), was signed into law in 2014 and requires schools to add an item to their enrollment forms in order to provide the parent or legal guardian information about health coverage options and enrollment assistance for school years 2015, 2016 and 2017.
