OFFICE OF SCHOOL MEDICAID

The case manager works with students, families, school staff, physicians, dentists, hospitals, clinics and other community organizations to facilitate students getting needed medical, psychological/psychiatric, or developmental evaluations/services. This is accomplished by:

  • home visits; 
  • meetings with parents/students at school; 
  • meetings with school staff; 
  • attendance at Special Education meetings; 
  • accompanying parents and students to medical appointments; 
  • phone calls, faxes and e-mails (with written permission to help obtain needed appointments with a physician/dentist, mental health provider, physical or an occupational therapist, etc.); and 
  • referring families to community agencies that work with the homeless or those in need of food, clothing, etc.

Staff in Aurora Public Schools can make a referral for case management services through the Office of Medicaid Services by:

Completing the form REFERRAL FOR CASE MANAGEMENT SERVICES

  • Please make sure you have discussed your intention to make this referral with the parent and have them sign this form. 
  • It is helpful to also call the case manager to discuss your concerns and/or invite her to a meeting at your school with staff who work with the student. 
  • Please inform the case manager how often school staff would like feedback regarding the family and student.
