School Health Services Medicaid Program

  • Pueblo School District 60 participates in the School Health Services Medicaid Program. The district receives partial reimbursement from Health First Colorado (Colorado Medicaid) for the health and medical services provided in the school setting to students enrolled in Health First Colorado with an Individual Education Plan (IEP).

    IEP health services are provided by the school at no cost to families, are reimbursed to the district, and do not affect your child’s lifetime Health First Colorado benefits. Students can receive health services at school on the same day they receive services outside of school.
