School-Based Services and Medicaid
The State of Wisconsin and the Verona Area School District participate in a Federal program called Wisconsin Medicaid School-Based Services (SBS). School-Based services (SBS) is a program that allows public school districts to bill Wisconsin Medicaid for medically necessary services provided to Medicaid-eligible children. These services must be listed in a student’s IEP and include: attendant care services, nursing services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language pathology services, specialized medical transportation, psychological services, counseling, social work services, and developmental testing and assessment. In turn, the State receives federal reimbursement for medical services performed as reported in Medicaid students' IEPs.
