For more than 20 years, KSBA has helped Kentucky school districts maximize Medicaid reimbursements for special education services such as speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, nursing care, audiology, the purchase of assistive technology devices and special transportation. The use of custom software — ezEdMed — helps school districts to easily and efficiently manage their special education-related services and maintain IDEA compliance. It is more than a claim-entry service —it is a time-saving management tool for the school district’s staff and administrators.
KSBA offers in-service training (CEU/EILA credit), on-site, webinar and video conferencing with easy-to-use reference manuals. Currently, 146 school districts receive reimbursement of special education related service costs by participating through KSBA membership. More than 3,000 therapists and teachers use EzEdMed daily to document therapy and progress monitoring on their special education students.
