CMS Launches the SBS Technical Assistance Center

26 Jun 2023 12:30 PM | Anonymous

In follow up to the release of the School-Based Services (SBS) Comprehensive Guide to Medicaid Services and Administrative Claiming in May 2023, HHS's Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) launched the SBS Technical Assistance (TA) Center. This center will continue to be developed in conjunction with the Department of Education (ED). It will:

  • Support State Medicaid agencies, local education agencies (LEAs), and school-based entities seeking to expand their capacity for providing Medicaid SBS
  • Reduce administrative burden
  • Support such entities in obtaining payment for the rendering of Medicaid SBS
  • Ensure ongoing coordination and collaboration between ED and the Department of Health and Human Services regarding Medicaid SBS
  • Provide guidance with regard to utilization of various funding sources.

CMS encourages stakeholders to use the TA Center to assist in implementing the flexibilities and requirements discussed in the SBS Guide and further enhancing or expanding their current SBS programs. The Center will continue to add resources and materials to support States and schools in implementing Medicaid SBS.

The TAC will continue to be updated with additional resources over the coming months. Future resources will include more in depth guidance on various aspects of billing for school-based Medicaid for both state Medicaid agencies, state education agencies, local education agencies, and schools. CMS welcomes input on what future content should be developed for the TAC. Please email any TAC suggestions to the SBS mailbox at
