AN ACT TO DEEM CHARTER SCHOOLS AS LOCAL GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES AS NECESSARY TO ALLOW CHARTER SCHOOLS TO RECEIVE MEDICAID REIMBURSEMENT IN THE SAME MANNER AS LOCAL EDUCATION AGENCIES.
Amends GS 115C-218.105 to deem a charter school, that is approved by the State as a public school, as a local government entity that is responsible, or assumes responsibility, for the payment of the nonfederal share for reimbursable medical services, including administrative activities related to those services, that are medically necessary and for which federal payment is available under the NC Medicaid Program. Requires the nonfederal share to consist of public funds. Defines nonfederal share to mean the share of expenditures for the reimbursable medical services that draws down federal financial participation.
Amends GS 108D-35 (services covered by PHPs) to specify that the capitated contracts required by the statute do not cover services documented in an individualized education program or other document described in the Medicaid State Plan and provided or billed by a charter school that is qualified to certify public expenditures.
Effective July 1, 2021.
