Medicaid Billing

Charter schools that become Medicaid providers can be reimbursed for related services they provide to eligible students with IEPs.

The amount of reimbursement an LEA receives varies greatly. LEAs can seek reimbursement for related services provided to students who have an IEP, are eligible for and enrolled in Medicaid, and have medically necessary related services on his/her IEP, such as speech, occupational therapy, physical therapy and/or counseling.
