ASHA recently developed answers to frequently asked questions about federal regulations governing service provision to students eligible for public benefits or insurance.
The regulations concern the use of a child's or parent's public benefits or insurance (Medicaid, for example) to provide or pay for services required under Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
Among other issues, the regulations clarify the parental consent a public agency must obtain before accessing a child's or parent's public benefits or insurance for the first time and state that the agency must provide written notification to the child's parents before accessing a child's or parent's entitlements for the first time and annually thereafter.
