The program

CSBA offers the most comprehensive Medi-Cal and Medicaid Administrative billing services available to local education agencies. Our broad range of expertise allows us to identify areas of reimbursement often overlooked by others, while minimizing your efforts. There are no up-front costs to the district.

LEA Medi-Cal billing option
The Local Education Agency Medi-Cal billing Option program allows school districts to claim reimbursement for Medi-Cal services they currently provide to eligible children within the school environment. Reimbursement dollars can help to increase the amount of funding districts have to improve and enhance health services to their students.

Medicaid Administrative Activities (MAA) option
Medi-Cal Administrative Activities are administrative activities necessary for the proper and efficient administration of the Medi-Cal program. These Medi-Cal funds are in addition to those available through the LEA Medi-Cal Billing Option.
