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).
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.
