School-Based Medicaid

The State Department of Education and the Department of Health and Welfare, Division of Medicaid, come together quarterly as a School-Based Medicaid Advisory Committee. These meetings are necessary to help facilitate better communication between school districts (School- Based Medicaid providers), Medicaid policy, and Medicaid Integrity.  This committee meets to address changes in School-Based Medicaid IDAPA rules, discuss audit findings and ways to make practice corrections, as well as providing clarification to districts on School-Based Medicaid policies and procedures.  This site provides the minutes to Advisory meetings, documentation that is relevant to the implementation of School-Based Medicaid rules, training material, and other related materials.
