On Feb 14, 2012 the US Dept of Ed revised IDEA 2004's access to Medicaid benefits provision of the special ed Regs. Subsection (d) of 34 USC 300.154 was revised so that school districts do not have to obtain parental consent each time Medicaid benefits are utilized. The "notification" and "consent" must occur prior to the first time they are accessed. Thereafter, consent, whether each time or annual is not required, just an annual notification. This video includes the Federal Register (FR) and Pete Wright's reformatted version of the FR, along with the revision for page 219 in Wrightslaw: Special Education Law, 2nd Ed.

Pete also discusses his concern that this regulatory revision may lead to an increased chance of Medicaid Fraud. Pete displays other websites with school district fraud cases. He discusses the "whistleblower" component, also known as a "Qui Tam" case. A whistleblower speech therapist recovered Ten Million Dollars from a school district!
