Medicaid in Education

Since 1988, states have been able to leverage federal Medicaid funds to help offset costs for school-based health related services required by the IDEA, when provided to Medicaid-eligible students. School Medicaid can be leveraged for covered health related services that are considered early intervention (EI), early childhood special education (ECSE), and special education services provided to Medicaid-eligible children who are also eligible under the IDEA. EI covers birth to age three, ECSE covers ages three to five, and special education covers ages five through twenty-one.

SB 111 (School Medicaid Pilot Project)

  • SB 111 (2017) requires the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) to assist schools in funding school nurse services through increased SBHS Medicaid billing. As part of this pilot project, ODE will submit a report that includes a cost benefit analysis to the interim committees of the Legislative Assembly related to education no later than October 1, 2020.
