Local Education Agencies (LEA) are required to pay an approximate 30% Medicaid reimbursement match for all school-based services billed on behalf of the LEA. The Medicaid Match percentage fluctuates based on federal guidelines.
The ADE distributes Medicaid billing reports to LEAs quarterly. These reports provide detailed Medicaid billing information and the cumulative quarterly match amount owed by the LEA.
All school-based Medicaid billable services provided by a public school employee or provided by an outside provider on behalf of a LEA as a mandated school-based services must be billed using the LEA number.
Medicaid Match payments should be mailed to the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education.
