|SUBJECT:||Medicaid Billing for Special Education Services`|
We have received inquiries from school divisions about contractual arrangements with private firms to provide medicaid billing for special education services. Barbara Hickey, the School/Community Health Services Grant Specialist, has been designated by the Department to provide technical assistance to school divisions regarding the Medicaid billing program. Ms. Hickey is available for consultation if you are considering such an arrangement. Further, the Departments of Education and Medical Assistance Services sponsor training each year to provide the information necessary to establish a Medicaid billing program for special education services. May 9, 1996 has been tentatively set as the date for this year's training. Additional information about the training will be provided at a later date. Please feel free to call Ms. Hickey at (804) 441-1471 if you have questions about medicaid billing procedures, including contractual arrangements with private firms. WCBJr/cp
