In California, Leader Services works with education agencies across the state to facilitate
reimbursement from Medi-Cal through two programs: LEA Billing Option (LEA BOP) & Random
Moment Time Survey (RMTS).
The LEA BOP offers reimbursement for schools that provide certain medically-necessary
health-related services to students eligible for Medi-Cal. Leader facilitates the process through
staff training, online data capture via our Service Tracking and Reporting (STaR™) application,
claim submission, reconciliation, reporting, and more. Learn more about STaR.
Leader works with the School-Based Medi-Cal Administrative Activities (SMAA) Coordinator
to review staff roles & daily activities for proper placement in RMTS cost pools, and ensure
LBO Provider inclusion on the Time Survey Participant (TSP) to verify sources and confirm
staff is not 100% federally or Indirect Cost Rate (ICR) funded. We review RMTS coding
reports for accuracy and provide verification for the Orange County LEC. In addition, we
work with the business office for collection of fiscal data, prepare SMAA invoice + supporting
documentation, and review with key staff prior to submission. Ongoing audit files are
created and support is provided during audits. Learn more about the MAA program.
