The Ohio Medicaid Schools Program

The Medicaid School Program (MSP) has been developed to include federal Medicaid matching funding for medically necessary therapy services, certain administrative activities, and specialized transportation associated with accessing therapy services. Direct MSP providers include traditional school districts and community schools. However, other entities may be involved in the program through contracting, such as Educational Service Centers (ESCs) or private therapy clinics. MSP is coordinated jointly between the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) and the Ohio Department of Education (ODE).
