Mississippi School Boards Association and Accelify Attain Clarity on New Medicaid Claiming Policy for Coming School Year
Date:8/13/2009

JACKSON, Miss., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the confusion regarding changes to Mississippi Medicaid benefits for speech therapy services, The Mississippi School Boards Association and Accelify have attained clarity from the Mississippi Division of Medicaid on the new Medicaid claiming policy for the coming school year.

"MSBA is dedicated to offering Mississippi school districts the resources they need to ensure quality performance and maximum results.

Accelify's Medicaid claiming systems and IEP development solution are all compatible with the recent changes, and will ensure districts can continue claiming benefits once Treatment Authorization Numbers are obtained for eligible students.
