The program's purpose is to assure that Medicaid eligible children and teenagers, who are special-education certified, receive needed health care.  Wayne RESA is the Medicaid provider under which all claims are made.

The School Based Services program is divided into two very distinct segments:

  • The Cost-Based Reimbursement (Fee-for-Service) Program receives partial reimbursement for providing health-related services to students through age 21 with special needs under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). 

 > Health Related (DS, TCM and PC) Services

 > Health Related (Specialized Transportation) Services

  • The Administrative Outreach Program receives partial reimbursement for the administrative costs to identify and help students who are considered "at risk" for various health problems.
