Schools are entitled to get reimbursement for certain direct services and administrative costs when serving students eligible for Medicaid. Schools are also eligible for the repayment for certain outreach activities that bring eligible students into the Medicaid program.

It is complicated to track time spent on the delivery of services and a district’s administrative costs. So certain companies specialize in providing software, tools, and consulting to capture the required information to get reimbursed by its state government.

One of these enterprises is Sivic Solutions. It holds a contract with the Monterey County Office of Education to provide Medicaid reimbursement services to school districts. The company won that contract by being the low-cost bidder through a competitive national solicitation run cooperatively with the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies. Thanks to the MCOE bid, Sivic Solutions can often offer lower costs than those charged by many other providers in California. Using the service is a net win for schools because Sivic Solutions only gets paid, when it returns money back to the school district.

Medicaid is financed jointly by the states and the federal government. It is administered directly by the states. Under federal guidelines, each state creates a state Medicaid plan that outlines eligibility standards, provider requirements, methods of payment, and benefit packages. If a school district records and reports its costs correctly, it can enjoy significant reimbursements, offsetting operating expenses that it would otherwise have to absorb.
