KSBA Medicaid Billing Service going strong
Barbara Tumolo-Wash has joined KSBA as the school-based health services coordinator for the Association’s Medicaid Billing Service.
KSBA’s ezEdMed online billing service helps school districts secure reimbursement of the cost for health services provided to special education students who are Medicaid-eligible.
“What I’ve learned is that there are a lot of dedicated providers out there,” Tumolo-Wash said. “As a provider, I cannot believe, in talking with these therapists and teachers and administrators and special educators, how dedicated they are. For me, that was an eye opener as to how many people want to help and want to improve things with special education.”
There are 143 districts and more than 2,000 special education staff who use the ezEdMed system, which provides online caseload scheduling of services and documentation for both special education compliance and Medicaid reimbursement.
“Now the service is offering so much more,” Tumolo-Wash said, with more functions carried out electronically, such as electronic signatures for nurses to use in the process.
