Third Party Billing

  • In Minnesota, the Department of Human Services (DHS) is the state Medicaid agency. Medicaid funds have been available since 1989 to pay for health related services provided by Minnesota public districts to eligible children through an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or Individualized Family Service Program (IFSP). Minnesota Statutes 125A.21, subd. 2(a) requires MN public school districts to “seek reimbursement from insurers and similar third parties for the cost of services provided by the districts whenever the services provided by the district are otherwise covered by the child’s health coverage.”
