Third Party Billing

Minnesota Law (M.SS.125A.21) requires that school districts seek reimbursement from private and public health insurers for the cost of health-related services provided to students who receive special education services. If your child receives health-related services as part of their IEP, IFSP or IIIP, a member of your child's team may ask your permission to share information with your insurer and/or physician in order to bill for these services. Health-related services are developmental, corrective and supportive services that are required in order for a student to benefit from their program of specialized instruction. Health-related services include supports such as:
  • Diagnosis, evaluation and assessment;
  • Speech, physical and occupational therapies;
  • Audiology;
  • Paraprofessional/personal care assistant (PCA) services;
  • Mental health services;
  • Transportation; and
  • Health services such as nursing.
