             Medicaid in Schools

   Established in 1965 under Title XIX of
    the Social Security ACT, Medicaid
    provides medical assistance for low-
    income Americans through Federal
    grants to States.
       Since 1988, Medicaid has been authorized
        by Congress to reimburse for IDEA-related
        medically necessary services.
         Medicaid in Schools

While schools are legally liable to provide IDEA-related
health services at no cost to the eligible students Medicaid
reimbursement is available for these services because section
1903 (c) of the ACT requires Medicaid to be primary to the
U.S. Department of Education for payment of the health-
related services provided under IDEA.

   Fee-For-Service:
   Section 1903 of the Social Security Act
       Authorizes states with an approved State plan to access
        reimbursement for Medicaid covered School-Based Health Services
        (SBHS) included in a child’s IEP/IFSP.

    Connecting the Puzzle Pieces
   Medicaid Administrative Claiming (MAC):
   Federal matching funds under Medicaid are available for the
    cost of administrative activities that directly support efforts to
    identify and enroll potential eligibles into Medicaid and that
    directly support the provision of medical services covered under
    the state Medicaid plan. To the extent that school employees
    perform administrative activities that are in support of the state
    Medicaid plan, federal reimbursement may be claimable
    through the “MAC” program.

   Handouts
     Medicaid Provider Participation
     Medicaid Outreach and Eligibility
      Determination – Code B1
     Referral, Coordination and Monitoring of
      Medicaid-Covered Services – Code C1
              Medicaid Provider
                Participation
   Administrative activities performed in support of direct
    medical/health services that are not covered or reimbursable
    under the Medicaid program are NOT reimbursable under the
    Medicaid Administrative Claiming Program.
   In order for a medical/health service to be reimbursable, the
    provider furnishing such services must be an enrolled or
    participating Medicaid provider and bill Medicaid for the service.
   If the provider is not an enrolled or participating Medicaid
    provider or chooses not to bill Medicaid for the services
    rendered, then the service cannot be reimbursed and the
    administrative expenditures related to the service are also not
    allowable.
   An education agency does not have to be an enrolled or
    participating Medicaid provider in order to claim referrals of
    students to Medicaid-covered medical/health services provided
    in the community, as long as the provider rendering the
    services is an enrolled or participating Medicaid provider.

       However, recently passed legislation placed a
        moratorium on implementing the final rule until
        April 1, 2009, placing a delay on the
        implementation of these changes.
