to Access Public Benefits (Medicaid)
Medicaid School Program
Piqua City School District has the opportunity to receive Federal Medicaid
dollars through a program called the Ohio Medicaid School Program (MSP).
Through this program, school districts can receive Medicaid dollars for
services such as Speech, Audiology, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy,
Nursing, Psychology, Counseling, and Social Work services. The district can
receive funding when a student receives one or more of these services and the
student has current Medicaid insurance coverage. In the process of billing
Medicaid for these services, certain billing information must be shared with
the Ohio Department of Medicaid. Before the district can submit claim data for
Medicaid billing purposes, we must first obtain a signed Parental Consent to
Share Information and Access Medicaid.
