Time Study
Independent School Districts (ISD)

Random Moment Time Study (RMTS)

General Information

The United States Congress recognizes the vital role of public schools in providing health services for our nationís children. For that reason, schools are reimbursed with federal Medicaid funds for the provision of covered medical services, including mental health services, and for the costs of administrative activities, such as outreach, which support the Medicaid program. These services are funded through the School Health and Related Services (SHARS) program and the School-Based Medicaid Administrative Claiming (MAC) program.
