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 five sections, as described below:
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 chronological order, with the most recent at the top. You can sort clarifications by topic or use the search window to find something specific. 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.
Links – This section includes links to School-Based
This is where you will find the Idaho Medicaid School-Based Services Reference Guide, meeting minutes and handouts associated with the Medicaid Advisory Committee and the Interagency Student Services Support Committee, sample forms, trainings, and other documents related to Medicaid School-Based Services.
The Department of Health and Welfare Division of Medicaid, the State Department of Education, and district representatives from each region come together quarterly (September, December, March, and June) for the Medicaid Advisory Committee. These meetings help facilitate better communication between school districts (Medicaid School-Based Service providers), Medicaid policy makers, and the Office of Medicaid Program Integrity Unit (MPIU). This committee meets to address changes in IDAPA rules related to Medicaid School-Based Services, discuss audit findings and ways to improve practices, and provide clarification to districts on Medicaid School-Based Services policies and procedures. Quarterly meeting agendas and meeting minutes are located in the Resources section of this webpage and organized by academic year.
You may address any questions or concerns related to
School-Based Medicaid to Angie Williams. We look forward to working with you.
