Miller said he will leave the board with an open-ended problem of Medicaid billing. Schools are expected to do the billing for Medicaid reimbursement for school-based health services; however, the schools only get a quarter of that reimbursement. The state gets 50 percent of the reimbursement and the counties get 25 percent; the schools get 100 percent of the expenses.
Because of this problem, Miller said, CV-S, like many schools, is not billing and can not afford to do it. However, he said he expects the state to eventually demand the billing be done because it wants its share of the money.
