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.

Title: Districts Using Contracted Behavioral Supports (Habilitative Intervention (HI) Providers)
The Division of Family and Community Services (FACS) is responsible for processing the renewal applications for individuals who hold a Habilitative Intervention (HI) Certificate of Completion as outlined in IDAPA 16.03.10.685.07.
FACS has identified renewal applications that are not consistently meeting the required number of continuing training hours. FACS will incorporate the following steps to address these renewals that are out of compliance with IDAPA.
When an individual submits the renewal application for their Certificate of Completion, if it is determined that the individual did not meet the HI continuing training requirement during year one (1), and a gap in training hours occurred, a letter will be sent to the HI Certificate of Completion holder and a letter will be sent to the Medicaid provider identifying that the staff’s qualifications are out of compliance with IDAPA.
It is the responsibility of Medicaid providers (Developmental Disability Agencies, School Districts, and Charter Schools) to ensure that HI providers are qualified to provide services. The Medicaid provider is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of claims submitted and shall immediately repay the Department for any services the Department or provider determines were not properly provided or documented.
If you have questions with regards to the Habilitative Intervention Certificate of Completion continuing training requirements, please contact Bobbi Hamilton, BCaBA at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1 (208) 334-5777.
