As part of Senate Bill 231 (2001, Ortiz), the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is required to file an annual report to the Legislature on the LEA Billing Option program.

The 2012 Report covers the period of April 2011 through May 2012 and includes: a comparison of school-based Medicaid systems in comparable states, a summary of departmental activities geared toward program and total reimbursement improvement, school-based services and providers identified for possible program expansion, identified barriers, and other recommendations made in collaboration with the LEA Ad-Hoc Workgroup, the California Department of Education (CDE), and other stakeholders.
