Welcome to the School-Based Medicaid webpage. We acknowledge that School-Based Medicaid services and billing can be complicated and confusing to understand and implement.  The purpose of this webpage is to provide information, resources, clarification, and training to better help you serve your students with disabilities and support your staff.  This webpage has seven sections:

Introduction – This first section provides a brief overview and describes the organization of this webpage, including contact information.

What’s New – This section includes new information as it becomes available. Check this section frequently to learn about any exciting news or upcoming events.  Information in this section will move into other relevant sections as it ages.

Clarification Form – Use this form to ask questions, seek clarification, or share thoughts and suggestions regarding School-Based Medicaid and/or associated IDAPA rules. Specific details regarding how to use the Clarification Form are described in that section.

Clarifications – Here is where you can learn from each other’s questions. This section contains responses to the questions and issues submitted on Clarification Forms. Clarifications appear in alphabetical order by topic. Consider browsing the Clarifications section before submitting your own Clarification Form because one of your peers may have already asked your question. However, do not hesitate to submit your own Clarification Form if you cannot find an answer to your question or issue in this section.

Trainings – This section includes recordings from webinars, web-based training modules, and associated handouts. As new webinars happen their recordings will be added to this section.

Resource Links – This section includes links to School-Based Medicaid resources.

Resources - This is where you will find the most up-to-date sample documents within the 2017 Idaho Medicaid Guidance Handbook for Educators. Simply use the search bar to find a specific document, search by category, or scroll through the list.

The Department of Health and Welfare, Division of Medicaid, and the State Department of Education come together quarterly in the School-Based Medicaid Advisory Committee. These meetings are necessary to facilitate better communication between school districts (School-Based Medicaid providers), Medicaid policy makers, and the office Medicaid Integrity. This committee meets to address changes in School-Based Medicaid IDAPA rules, discuss audit findings and ways to make practice corrections, and provide clarification to districts on School-Based Medicaid policies and procedures. Quarterly meeting agendas, meeting minutes, and other supporting documents are located in the Documents section of this webpage.

You may address any questions or concerns related to School-Based Medicaid to Angie Williams. We look forward to working with you.
