Jake's Law

In 2020, the Arizona legislature passed “Jake’s Law,” which created a fund that provides uninsured and underinsured children access to behavioral health services when they are referred through an educational institution – otherwise known as “school-based referrals.”  To make school-based referrals, the legislature required school districts and charter schools to pass a policy that outlined the law as it relates to school-based referrals. The policy must include:

  1. An opt-in process for parents

  2. A survey to parents whose children utilize school-based referrals

  3. A list of service providers published on the district website

  4. An annual report to the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS)
