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 Fee for Service program receives partial reimbursement for direct medical services provided to special education students through the age of 21. >More Information 
  • 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. > More Information

Health services in the school systems include not only physical health, but mental and emotional health as well.
