Fee for service recovery effort
Fee-For-Service Recovery Effort

    • Special Ed

  • Services must pertain to a “medical” service on the student’s IEP.

Medical service

  • The service must involve one of the following areas:

  • Speech / Audiology / Assistive Technology

  • Psychology

  • Social Work

  • OT or PT

  • Nursing

  • Vision / Orientation &Mobility

  • Personal Care

Unbillable record keeping only services
Unbillable - Record Keeping Only Services

  • Use the Unbillable service option on your procedure code drop-down list if you want to track:

    • Missed sessions, consultations, services for LD/CI only students, etc. that are not “billable”

      These “services” will not generate claims, but should be made “ready to bill” to keep them off the “open services” report.

Ld or ci only
LD or CI Only

Is the student Learning Disabled or Cognitively impaired ONLY? (No speech, social work, OT, PT, psychology, nursing, O&M, etc. on the IEP)

  • Ancillary staff may still record MET and IEP/IFSP Assessments

  • Case Management does not apply

  • The only reimbursable direct service is Crisis Intervention

  • The Unbillable code may be used for LD/CI services.

Met and iep case managers only
MET and IEPCase Managers Only

  • Coordination of and participation in a MET or IEP/IFSP may be recorded by the “Designated Case Manager” only if the student’s IEP includes a scheduled “Medically-Related” service.

  • Use the Unbillable code for initial MET’s and IEP’s

  • Use the Unbillable code for students without a medical service

Recording services
Recording Services

  • Information to be completed by the Practitioner:

  • Student’s “Presenting Problem”

  • TCM Service Code

  • Monthly Progress Note/Summary

Designated case management

  • Recorded ONCE per month

  • Service Date is the last school day of the month

  • Use Procedure Code T2023

  • Record the letter, A-K, that describes a single service during the month

  • Provide service details in the Summary Note

  • Were you interacting with:

    • Parent(s) or Guardian

    • Speech Path, Social Worker, OT, PT, etc.

    • Outside Agency

  • If only with the student – it’s a direct service – DO NOT BILL. Case management is for indirect services only.

Use the 3 w s1


Be specific:

Good = Met with parents and social worker to discuss progress on behavioral goals

Bad = Parent Meeting

Use the 3 W’s!

Use the 3 w s2
Use the 3 W’s!

The false claims act preventing fraud waste abuse
The False Claims ActPreventing Fraud, Waste, Abuse

Detroit Public Schools is committed to ensuring that its coding, billing and reimbursement procedures comply with all federal and state laws. However, we cannot ensure that the services reported were provided as stated, that they were medically necessary or were not false or misleading.

If you have knowledge or information that School-Based Services being reported to Detroit Public Schools Risk Management Office for the purposes of Medicaid billing are false or fraudulent, such as the falsification of records or submitting services for billing that were not performed, please report the situation to your supervisor or to the Attorney General’s Health Care Fraud Division at: 800-242-2873.

Whistleblower provision
Whistleblower Provision

Federal and state law prohibit any retaliation or retribution against any person who reports suspected fraudulent billing to law enforcement officials or who file “whistleblower” lawsuits on behalf of the government.

What is the RMTS?

Out of this pool comes the Random Moment Time Study. This is the tool that Michigan uses to determine the amount of time school staff spend on activities that are in support of the Medicaid program

When is the rmts
When is the RMTS?

Every quarter, names will be drawn and you could be chosen at any point to participate in one or more of these random moment time study surveys.

There is no limit to how many times your name can be drawn in a quarter.

How does it work
How Does It Work?

If you are selected to participate, you will receive notification in the mail that you need to complete a RMTS survey on-line. This should take no more than 10 minutes of your time. It is mandatory to complete your moment within 24 hours of the date/time of selected moment.

What do i have to do
