The Office of Third Party Billing generates revenue for BCPS through the recovery of funds from Medicaid for health-related, case management, transportation, and autism waiver services provided to Medicaid eligible, special education students. Staff in schools document services provided in alignment with a child's IEP in an electronic database. An electronic claim is created and sent to Medicaid for review and payment. Funds generated through the program are utilized to expand and enhance special education, related services, and health services in accordance with a MSDE Memorandum of Understanding. The Office of Third Party Billing also bills and generates revenue from school-based health center services, non-resident tuition, and the Out-of-County Living Arrangement (OCLA) Program.
