Schools are required to obtain consent from parents whose children receive Special Education Services and are eligible for Medicaid.
Parent consent means:
That the parent has been informed about the Medicaid School Based Services Program.
That the parent has given permission to release their child's school records to Medicaid and claiming agencies.
That the parent understands their consent is voluntary and can be revoked.
More information and answers to common questions about the Medicaid School Based Services Program are included in the information sheet. This document and video link are valuable resources for schools, administrators and teachers when talking to parents about Medicaid.
Medicaid Parental Consent Annual Notification is provided to families via the Special Education Parent Handbook and Procedural Safeguards.
