Just 21 states have plans approved by the federal government for submission of Medicaid claims related to special education medical costs. Another seven states have such plans pending before the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for approval. The plans establish procedures for collecting the reimbursement. Without such plans, schools run the risk of losing out on Medicaid money by filing claims improperly.

These states have approved plans: Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin.

These states have plans pending for review by the CMS: Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, and Utah.
