December 12, 2011 is the deadline to submit comments on the proposed change to the IDEA Part B regulation requiring schools to obtain parental consent to bill Medicaid for health-related IEP services. You can review the proposed regulation at: www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-09-28/pdf/2011-22784.pdf, and public comments may be submitted online at www.regulations.gov.
The U.S. DOE Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) has expressed interest in receiving comments from a wide variety of constituents, including LEAs, parents, educators, Directors of Special Education as well as professional, advocacy and other stakeholder organizations. In proposing this regulation change, OSERS seeks to: clarify the requirements for informing parents about LEAs accessing Medicaid benefits for covered IEP services, and reduce unnecessary administrative and cost burdens associated with this process.
NAMES letter of support for the proposed regulation along with additional information, including “template” letters can be found in the post below.
