Federal law requires each State to develop agreements with non-educational public agencies to ensure all services necessary to provide a free appropriate public education (FAPE) are provided to children with disabilities at no cost to the parent. This includes the State Medicaid agency when local education agencies (LEAs) are seeking reimbursement for some health care services provided at school. 

 

Under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), parent consent is required for the school system to release information about your child to the North Carolina Division of Health Benefits (NC Medicaid) in order to access your or your child’s public benefits. You are entitled to have a copy of any information the school system releases to the state Medicaid program. 

 

The funds collected from Medicaid in this school system will be used to:
