KY increasing access to Medicaid health services for students

By Christina Dettman/Jordan Rowe

Frankfort, KY - The Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) has received final approval for a Medicaid state plan amendment that will expand health services in schools. The change to Medicaid will be phased in during the current school year, and approval for direct services reimbursements to school districts is retroactive to August 1, 2019.

"Approval of this amendment is a game-changer," said CHFS Secretary Adam Meier. "This will provide additional resources to support increased access to mental health services for students using money already being spend by school districts."

Children with Medicaid coverage often do not receive needed health care services due to barriers to seeking care, such as lack of transportation, parent work schedules, or finding a nearby provider who accepts Medicaid.

"This exciting change will be instrumental in providing additional physical and mental health resources to students," said Wayne Lewis, Commissioner for the Kentucky Department of Education.

Historically, schools were only able to bill Medicaid if the services were outlined in a student's Individual Education Plan (IEP). Services like mental health assessments, mental health counseling, speech therapy, or nurse services provided to children at school without an IEP were not billable. The amendment will now allow additional services provided at no cost to be covered by Medicaid for eligible students.
