SANTA FE, N.M., Aug. 13 The New Mexico School Boards Association and Accelify announced today the creation of a new alliance to assist school districts with Medicaid claiming. This program will be made available to all districts regardless of size and will be administered by Accelify.
"We are proud to associate ourselves with Accelify," said Joe Guillen, NMSBA's Executive Director. "NMSBA is focused on bringing value-added programs to New Mexico school districts. We at NMSBA are excited to have identified this opportunity to increase School District Medicaid reimbursements at a time when School District budgets are being negatively impacted in so many ways."
The New Mexico School Boards Association (NMSBA) Board of Directors recently approved this collaboration with Accelify, LLC to establish a Medicaid Claiming Consortium that will help school districts increase the amount of Medicaid funds they are able to claim for various health-related services they provide to special education students.
"During the past few months, there has been a surge in Medicaid applications throughout the state," said Jack Goldenberg, CEO of Accelify. "In addition, school districts in New Mexico are reimbursed at the rate of 70.88% of approved Medicaid claims - one of the highest rates in the country. The economic stimulus package recently passed by Congress will increase that rate by approximately 7%. This means that School Districts in New Mexico will receive more for every documented claim than ever before."
Accelify has a proven track record of increasing Medicaid revenue for client districts. In many instances, Accelify has been able to produce 100%+ increases for their client districts.
