The U.S. Department of Education recently revised the federal regulations under the I.D.E.A., Part B, relating to parental consent to access Medicaid. On June 13, 2013, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) issued Administrative Advisory SPED 2013-1, which interprets the revised federal regulations permitting school districts to bill MassHealth for the cost of special education services provided to eligible students. The U.S. DOE and DESE have substantially eased the process for school districts to access MassHealth by adopting a one-time consent rule instead of requiring renewed consent each time the student’s services change.
