Frontline Medicaid

In 1988, an amendment to the Social Security Act provided statutory authority for School Supportive Health Services Program (SSHSP), also known as Medicaid in Education, by allowing Medicaid coverage of medical services included in the Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) of students with disabilities. The purpose of SSHSP is to provide Medicaid reimbursement to school districts, §4201 schools and counties for certain diagnostic and health support services provided to Medicaid-eligible students with disabilities. The SSHSP applies to students from age three years up to their 21st birthday.
