School Health Services are services provided by a Local Education Agency for children who attend public schools in Nevada. School Health Services are medically necessary services listed in the student’s plan of care, and/or preventive services that are coverable under Early Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment as defined in 42 Code of Federal Regulations 440.40(b). Services listed in a plan of care are designed to meet the needs of a child and work towards the reduction of a physical or mental impairment and restoration of the child to the best possible functional level.
For a district to receive reimbursement for services through the Medicaid School Health Services Program, each Medicaid-eligible student must have a plan of care that documents the medical necessity of the service(s) to be provided and/or preventive services that are coverable under the Healthy Kids Program-Early Periodic Diagnostic and Treatment. This documentation needs to specify the services required to treat the student’s identified medical condition(s) as specified in Chapter 2800 of Nevada’s Medicaid Services Manual.
Families with students currently enrolled in CCSD may complete the Consent for Release of Information and Medicaid Reimbursement form using the Parent Portal in Infinite Campus (campusportal.ccsd.net).
