School districts nationwide struggle to provide equitable access to high quality therapy services for their students with special needs— especially in under-served areas. Teletherapy (also known as telemedicine and telehealth) brings therapists face-to-face with students online, wherever they are located.
Over half of all states and the District of Columbia now allow the reimbursement under Medicaid of some or all of school-based SLP, OT, and behavioral and mental health services delivered via teletherapy. Is your state one of them? Check out the map below to find out.
If reimbursement is permitted in your state and you are not already working with a Medicaid billing service provider, contact our partner Public Consulting Group (PCG) at PCGMedicaid@pcgus.com for more information about their services.
