Special Education Medicaid Initiative Information
The Sparta School District is participating in SEMI (the Special Education Medicaid Initiative) this year. Some services provided for our medicaid-eligible students as per their IEP (evaluations, OT, PT, S/L, nursing) will be reimbursable to the District through Medicaid, with no reduction to the student's Medicaid benefits.
NJAC6A:23A-5.3 requires every school district to take appropriate steps to maximize participation in the program. Ninety percent of all students with an IEP need to have their parent(s) sign a consent form (indicating a yes or no) annually.
