Medicaid is a jointly funded Federal-State health insurance program for persons with low income and/or disabilities. School Based Services allows districts to receive reimbursement for services provided to students with special needs under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

The program's purpose is to assure that Medicaid-eligible children and teenagers, who are special-education certified, receive needed health care. Saginaw ISD is the Medicaid provider under which all claims are made. Health services in the school systems include not only physical health, but mental and emotional health as well.
