Ever wonder what happens to the time survey or service logs your supervisor has asked you complete? This mini-skills presentation will provide participants an overview of the billing programs and how school districts utilize these programs to increase funding from federal Medicaid funds. Participants will also be provided with recent changes to the billing programs through the State Plant Amendment 15-021. School psychologists will also be provided with information related to the provision of telehealth services and how to begin the conversation with your supervisors regarding the billing and allocation of these funds to enhance your practice.
