CONCORD — The New Hampshire Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules Feb. 21 voted unanimously to approve He-W 589, the new Medicaid to School rule put forward by the N.H. Department of Health and Human Services.
Under the Medicaid to Schools program, school districts are eligible for Medicaid reimbursement for health care services that schools provide to students enrolled in Medicaid. Services eligible for federal reimbursement include behavioral health services, personal care and rehabilitation therapy services such as physical therapy.
The purpose of the rule is to describe the services reimbursable under Medicaid. The rule was developed in collaboration with stakeholders including teachers, providers, the governor’s office, legislators, advocates, the Office of Professional Licensure and Certification, and the Department of Education.
DHHS will host its next stakeholder engagement meeting March 3. For more information, go to tinyurl.com/vbjxpss.
