The individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) allows Medicaid to reimburse public schools for medically necessary services provided to eligible specials education students. The Medicaid School Services Program is designed to ensure that eligible children who receive special education services have access to needed health care.
Medicaid services provided in public schools include programs to address physical, mental and emotional health. Districts are required to notify the family of children who qualify and obtain consent prior to requesting reimbursement from Medicaid. All Medicaid claims for public schools in Allegan County are submitted through the Allegan Area Educational Service Agency.
