A word from the Michigan Department of Education, Office of Special Education: 

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” max_width=”620px” text_font=”PT Serif||||” text_font_size=”20″ text_text_color=”#363636″ use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” custom_margin=”30px||0px|” text_line_height=”1.5em” text_font_size_last_edited=”on|tablet”]

The Michigan Department of Education, Office of Special Education (MDE-OSE) is committed to improving opportunities and outcomes for students with IEPs. In order to engage as many stakeholders as possible in an honest conversation, MDE-OSE has asked Public Sector Consultants (PSC), an independent, Lansing-based public policy research firm, to assist in developing, managing, and analyzing this survey. We are seeking input from our partners across Michigan about the state of special education, and your voice is an essential part of this work. Please help us to best serve districts, schools, parents, and students by completing this brief survey no later than Friday, November 11, 2016.

This survey is a first step in a process allowing MDE in general, and MDE’s Office of Special Education in particular, to collect input from a wide variety of stakeholders about how Michigan can best serve students and fully meet its federal grant obligations. Responses from this survey will be used to inform work at MDE-OSE and future stakeholder engagement.

Your answers will be shared with MDE-OSE as anonymous feedback unless you grant PSC permission otherwise. PSC will gather the feedback and report back to MDE-OSE with a synthesis of your collected comments.

You may write as much as you want in response to each question, and you are welcome to skip a question if you do not feel comfortable providing an answer. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Jeff Williams at PSC by telephone or email at 517-484-4954 or jwilliams@pscinc.com.

3.In-Network Providers. If you are considering changing health care insurers, or if your employer is making the choice for you, make sure all of your providers are in-network. Notify your providers of any changes to your insurance to avoid complications with reimbursement and authorizations.

4.Self-funded Plans. Check with your benefits manager to see if your company is self-funded. If it’s self-funded, check to see if they have an autism rider with any of their plans. If the company has no autism benefit, consider an individual or “child only” Affordable Care Act plan* through the marketplace.

Medical and behavioral health care insurance can be extremely confusing, the navigators and insurance specialist at AAOM are available to help you make sense of the paperwork or guide you in the right direction if employed by a self-funded company.

*Important Note: Open enrollment for an individual or child-only plan is November 1 – December 15, for plans starting January 1, 2017. If you need to purchase an individual or “child only” plan, this is the time period that this can be done.
