OVERVIEW
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act requires local education agencies ( school districts which operate local public primary and secondary schools) to provide students with disabilities a free appropriate public education, including special education and related services according to each student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP). While local education agencies are financially responsible for educational services, in the case of a Medicaid-eligible student, state Medicaid agencies are responsible for the services identified in the student's IEP if they are covered under the state’s Medicaid plan. The Virginia Medicaid Program began covering school-based health and related services in October 1991, when the Department of Education (DOE) and the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) entered into an agreement that permitted local education agencies to be reimbursed with the federal Medicaid and Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP) matching funds for covered services in the student’s IEP.
