4 OVERVIEW OF MEDICAID SCHOOL BASED SERVICES PROGRAM Medicaid is a jointly funded Federal-State health insurance program for persons with low income and/or disabilities. School Based Services (SBS) allows reimbursement under the Medicaid program for services administered to students with special needs under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and is administered through the Intermediate School District. Coverage applies to individuals up to the age of 21 years who are enrolled in programs that require an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). Coverage is based on medically necessary, Medicaid-covered services already being provided in the school setting and enables these services provided to Medicaid-eligible beneficiaries to be billed to Medicaid. This ensures federal participation in the funding of these Medicaid covered services. Enrolled providers are required to establish an interagency agreement to facilitate coordination and cooperation with other human services agencies operating within the same service area. Medicaid services provided by the ISDs are to be provided as outlined in the IEP/IFSP treatment plan and are not expected to replace or substitute services already provided by other agencies. If services are being provided by another program, ISDs are expected to coordinate the services to prevent service overlap and to assure continuity of care to the Medicaid beneficiary. Medicaid covered services billed by ISDs include: Evaluations and tests performed for assessments Occupational Therapy Services Orientation and Mobility Services Assistive Technology Device Services Physical Therapy Services Speech, Language and Hearing Therapy Services Psychological, Counseling and Social Work Services Developmental Testing Services Nursing Services Personal Care Services Targeted Case Management (TCM) Services Specialized Transportation Services Special Education Transportation The personnel who service these students are as follows: Audiologists Occupational Therapists Physical Therapists Psychologists Registered Nurses Social Workers Speech Pathologists Teacher Consultants 2

5 Vision and Mobility Specialists Special Education Classroom Teachers Paraprofessionals The IEP/IFSP treatment plan must include the appropriate annual goals and short-term objectives, criteria, evaluation procedures, and schedules for determining whether the objectives are being achieved within an appropriate period of time (at least annually). All therapy services must be skilled (i.e. require the skills, knowledge, and education of a certified and registered occupational therapist, licensed physical therapist, CCC (Clinical Certificate of Competency) certified speech-language pathologist or licensed audiologist. INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES EDUCATION ACT (IDEA) ASSESSMENT & IEP/IFSP DEVELOPMENT, REVIEW & REVISION The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Assessment is a formal evaluation that includes assessments, evaluations, tests and all related activities performed to determine if a student is eligible under provisions of the IDEA of 1990 as amended in 1997 and 2004 and are related to the evaluation and functioning of the student. These services are reimbursable only after they result in the implementation of an IEP/IFSP treatment plan. If an IEP/IFSP treatment plan is not implemented within one (1) year of the date of service, then none of the services provided are covered. IDEA Assessment Services IDEA assessments are evaluations, tests and related activities performed to determine if an individual is eligible for special education or early intervention services under the provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of These services are related to the evaluation and re-evaluation of the functioning of the individual. Comprehensive evaluations must occur annually, and re-evaluations are performed when a change or decrease in function occurs. Services are reimbursable only after they result in the implementation of an IEP/IFSP. If an IEP/IFSP is not implemented within one year of the date of service, then these services are not covered. Professional evaluations performed as part of the IDEA assessment may be billed using the appropriate evaluation/assessment codes (Specific procedure codes are listed on Page 5). Provider Qualifications Qualified staff may bill for assessments, tests, and evaluations performed for the IDEA Assessment.

9 TARGETED CASE MANAGEMENT Targeted Case Management (TCM) (formerly known as service coordination) is a category of service which identifies and addresses special health problems and needs that affect the student s ability to learn, and ensures that the student receives effective and timely services appropriate to their needs. TCM is covered only when: There are other Medicaid-covered medical services in the IEP/IFSP treatment plan (i.e. occupational therapy; physical therapy; speech, language and hearing therapy; assistive technology device services; social work services; vision orientation and mobility training; nursing services; personal care services). Transportation by itself is not a qualifying Medicaid-covered service for billing TCM. A service provided on a consultative basis is not a qualifying Medicaidcovered service. Coordinating activities to assist students receiving special education or early intervention services to gain access to needed medical, social, educational, and other services. Designated Case Management (Procedure Code T2023) The Designated Case Manager is the person responsible for implementation of the IEP/IFSP treatment plan (most of the time it is the special education teacher). The Designated Case Manager must be an individual who meets one of the following criteria: A RN with a Michigan license; A baccalaureate degree with a major in a specific special education area; Has earned credit in course work equivalent to that required for a major in a specific special education area; or Has a minimum of three years personal experience in the direct care of an individual with special needs.

It is important to note that: There is only ONE Designated Case Manager per student (implementer on the IEP) Designated Case Management is for the coordination of Medicaid-covered services only, not for educational activities or other direct services provided to the student Designated Case Management cannot be billed for students who do not receive a Medicaid-covered service per the IEP/IFSP REIMBURSEMENT REQUIREMENTS In order for school districts to receive reimbursement under the provisions of the School Based Services program, the services billed must: Be provided to a Medicaid eligible student under the age of 21 Be provided to a student with an active IEP/IFSP; or Be provided to a student who will have an IEP/IFSP within one year in the case of IDEA assessment services Be provided by a qualified practitioner based on SBS Policy Address a student s physical, mental or emotional disability Be consistent with the intent of the IEP/IFSP identified services and planned goals.

Please refer to the Medicaid: Logging Encounters section contained in this document on Page 17 for specific instructions regarding logging Medicaid encounters in TieNet. Medicaid eligibility is checked every month. Medicaid eligible students are listed are your caseload in the far right hand column. Designated Case Managers should log Encounters only for those Medicaid eligible students who also receive a Medicaidcovered service (e.g. speech, OT, PT, SSW, S&L, PC, etc.). All other service providers should log Encounters for all Medicaid eligible students. It is recommended that service providers complete Encounters for the preceding month by the 10 th of the following month, so as to ensure a fluid billing process. For services that have time-specific procedure codes, the provider must indicate the actual begin and end time of the service. The record must indicate the specific findings or results of the diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. The student s school clinical record should include documentation of the implementation and coordination of services for the special education student. Please refer to the TIP Sheet specific to your discipline. When billing for evaluations not related to a MET or IEP, the date of service is the date the evaluation was completed. Services provided by substitute staff or staff on waivers are reimbursable only if the substitute meets the Medicaid certification requirements described in this document. Services provided by staff fully paid with federal funds are not reimbursable. Services provided to students in federally funded programs are reimbursable. 10

13 RECORD KEEPING REQUIREMENTS Documentation must be maintained which shows that services provided to or on behalf of the student comply with MDCH rules. These rules state that, at a minimum, the following information should be documented and maintained for seven (7) years: The IEP/IFSP document with the goals and services identified and any addendum to the plan Relevant evaluations and assessments given to determine the need for services An encounter log notation including the date of service, the type of service (e.g. group therapy, evaluation) the level of service intervention, and the name of the person providing the service The actual begin and end time of the service for services that have timespecific procedure codes A daily progress note describing the direct service rendered and the student s response to the service or treatment A brief monthly summary/progress note summarizing the services provided during the month, using your daily notes, as well as the student s progress toward the goals defined in the IEP/IFSP.
