ASHA's IDEA/Medicaid Side-by-Side will help you understand the differences between federal Medicaid and Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) regulations. It provides easy to access information on areas such as provider qualifications, supervision requirements, documentation requirements and patient confidentiality and will provide links to relevant information on ASHA's Web site. The Side-by-Side was designed to be not only a quick reference for ASHA members, but also to be used as an educational tool for school administrators when referencing speech-language pathology and audiology services.
New information will be updated as it becomes available.
Note: The information in these documents is based on federal regulations and ASHA policy documents.
To ensure compliance with both the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Medicaid, please check with your state Medicaid agency and state department of education for state-specific requirements for these programs.
