TO:                  Superintendents of Schools

FROM:            Susan A. Gendron, Commissioner

DATE:             June 24, 2005

SUBJECT:      Contracts with Maine State Billing

            Until there has been dialogue between the Maine Department of Education and Maine State Billing about our efforts that will be undertaken by both parties to maximize the federal reimbursement for School Based Rehabilitation Services, Day Treatment and Targeted Case Management, the Department does not want districts to sign contracts with Maine State Billing.

            The Department of Education is in the process of developing a Memorandum of Understanding with the Bureau of Medical Services, Department of Health and Human Services, to clearly articulate the respective roles and responsibilities in the collective implementation and reimbursement of Maine Care services.

            Once the dialogue has occurred with Maine State Billing, and the Memorandum of Understanding is finalized in the next few weeks, I will inform you about the timing and duration of contracts.
