WHY ARE WE HERE? • DSC is a federal Medicaid program that allows school districts/charter schools to receive reimbursement for some services provided to students who have IEP’s and those services are prescribed in the IEP’s. • Reimbursement is possible when the student is covered by Medicaid (AHCCCS in AZ). The billing agency tracks this, NOT the individual providers. • Because it is a reimbursement program, the services provided must be documented by the provider of the service. Aides are providers!
GENERAL HEALTH AIDE REQUIREMENTS • You must be certified in First Aid and CPR to claim for the DSC program (Do not claim if you’re not!). • You must apply for an AHCCCS ID. As long as you have applied for an AHCCCS # you can provide services before you get your AHCCCS number • You must be trained in any “targeted” ADL services you provide.
HEALTH AIDE SERVICES • All services must be indicated on the current IEP of the student and include the scope , frequency and duration of service. • Check with the teacher(s) you are working with to verify that aide services are indicated on the students’ IEPs and the student’s needs for Activities of Daily Living are mentioned in the present levels. • Do not record unless you are sure services are on the IEP AND you have been given the necessary information from the Case Manager/Special Education teacher(s) regarding the scope of services that may be claimed.
HEALTH AIDE SERVICES WHICH ARE NOT REIMBURSABLE • Academic Assistance and/or Tutoring is NOT a reimbursable service! • Needs and Services that are not documented on the IEP CANNOT be claimed! • You can contact the Medicaid Coordinator if you have any questions on the services you are providing.
