Speech-language pathologists looking for help implementing regulations on the use of a student's or parent's public benefits or insurance (Medicaid, for example) can turn to ASHA's new issue brief.
The regulations govern the use of public benefits to provide or pay for services required under Part B of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act.
The regulations clarify that:
  • A public agency must obtain parental consent prior to accessing a child's or parent's public benefits or insurance for the first time.

  • The agency must provide written notification to the child's parents before accessing a child's or parent's public benefits or insurance for the first time and annually thereafter.

This issue brief highlights the points most relevant for school-based clinicians. ASHA will continue to develop additional technical assistance materials, including FAQs, that will help members implement the regulations.
