MSB is excited to introduce new tools for Massachusetts school districts who are participating in School Based Medicaid reimbursement. What is so exciting about this information? 1) We’ve attempted to reduce the program requirements into reasonable checklists so that you can systematically review your knowledge and effective implementation of School-Based Medicaid. 2) We’ve provided corresponding outlines that give you all the references to where the requirements come from, making your research more efficient.
Here’s how we recommend you use this information:
- Take some time to review these documents by scanning them quickly, getting a sense of where you might need to spend additional time
- Read them again, this time more closely, but not necessarily checking and reading every footnote, with the purpose of taking some quick notes as to areas you want to address in more detail
- Consider scheduling some time with MSB to review the specific areas you are most concerned about, and perhaps developing a schedule to allow for in depth reviews of all areas
- Call or email Patricia or Steve to discuss options for meeting
MSB has compiled and published checklists and more detailed outlines for 4 major topics surrounding School Based Medicaid in Massachusetts. These documents follow and footnote the guidance documents provided by MassHealth and UMass Medical including the regulatory citations.
MSB encourages you to become familiar with these documents which can be found on our website:
Random Moment Time Study (RMTS)
Administrative Activity Claiming (AAC)
End of Year Cost Reporting
Direct/Interim Service Claiming
As a service to your district, MSB is offering to schedule time to review these checklists with you. As part of our consulting services, we can discuss program requirements and help you understand what is required for program compliance and maximizing reimbursements via Medicaid.
