Medicaid Billing for School Teletherapy

Which States Have It & How Your State Can Get It

Teletherapy alleviates much of the difficulty school districts face in hiring and contracting hard-to-find speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and mental health professionals to provide crucial services to their students with special needs. But why haven’t more than 50% of U.S. states taken advantage of Medicaid reimbursement for teletherapy? In 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) made it easier than ever to do so by approving teletherapy services for Medicaid and creating a streamlined method for submitting online therapy claims.

This guide:

  • Describes how teletherapy helps districts provide services despite a shortage of licensed and credentialed professionals
  • Outlines which (if any) teletherapy services are approved in each state
  • Provides guidance on how you can help your state take advantage of Medicaid funding for teletherapy
