What's not to like about the expansion of school-based services eligible for Medicaid reimbursement? Join us for this Town Hall session with state leaders in school-based OT from around the country as they share successes, lessons learned, and challenges in meeting standards for both educational relevance and medical necessity in serving students from Pre-K to high school. Panelists will provide resources from their states during the session.
Following this session, participants will be able to:
Discuss the evolution of school-based Medicaid reimbursement policies and programs.
Identify opportunities and challenges to Medicaid reimbursement for non-IEP services in schools.
Identify 1-2 readiness indicators/potential next steps for supporting Medicaid reimbursement for non-IEP school-based services in own state.
