Schools receive partial reimbursement from Medicaid for medical services provided to special education students who are less than 21 years of age.
School personnel who deliver qualified services under this program include:
Licensed Therapy Assistants (PTA and COTA)
Licensed Psychologists and Social Workers
Licensed Speech, Occupational, or Physical Therapists
Orientation and Mobility Specialists
RNs and LPNs
Special Education Classroom Teachers
Personal Care Paraprofessionals
Valuable medical services are made available and school personnel ensure that the special education student's plan of care is being implemented. As services are provided, the staff member must submit reports/claims in order for the school to receive reimbursement from Medicaid. Additionally, school personnel are selected to participate in the Random Moment Time Study (RMTS) Program which is used to monitor the amount of time spent on Medicaid School Based Services.
