  1. Can a school district charge a parent’s medical card for an evaluation for a specific learning disability?

    • In Ohio Medicaid will cover some of a school’s costs for eligible students for things like OT or speech therapy. Obviously the child must be eligible for and receiving Medicaid, and it looks like they pay for services rather than evals. I guess each State decides it’s own rules for managing their Medicaid dollars – so it’s possible your state does something similar.

      BTW – parental consent IS required in Ohio before these can be billed.
