Medicaid Reimbursement

The DCSD School Medicaid Reimbursement Program (also known as the School Health Services Program) allows school districts to seek partial reimbursement for health-related services provided to Medicaid-eligible students who have an Individual Education Plan. Claiming for health-related services given at school does not diminish a child’s Medicaid* benefits in other settings. Per Colorado’s School Health Services Program, reimbursements to school districts must be used to support health-related services and programs to improve or enhance health and wellness for all students.  Reimbursement funds currently support:

  • School Nursing Positions
  • Mental Health coordination and program support
  • Emergency health-related funding for uninsured and underinsured students
  • Health-related materials, equipment and supplies
  • Health-related staff development
  • Health-related resource funding for schools
  • Medicaid and Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) Outreach and Enrollment
