As the end of the school year approaches, a shared refrain can often be heard among educators: "There are just not enough hours in the day!" Perhaps we can help.  At MSB, we subscribe to the philosophy that it truly takes a village to raise a child. We take great pride in being part of your "village" through our partnership and we strive to relieve a bit of your administrative burden so educators may spend more time with kids. We are committed to this vision and believe the success of all our children depends on it.


Why not plan a little spring cleaning for your school district by meeting with your MSB Program Specialist?  We stand ready and determined to help your district maximize Medicaid reimbursement and find the tools that will make all of those varied tasks that educators juggle daily a little easier to manage.


Having worked as a Program Specialist in Maine for many years, I am looking forward to branching out and working more closely with our clients throughout New England within my new role as Senior Program Specialist.  I am also pleased to announce that Charlene Conant will be joining our team as a Program Specialist in Maine. Charlene has worked as a Claims Analyst here at MSB and brings a unique blend of skills, including expertise regarding MaineCare billing and a teaching background, to her new role.


As a parent and former teacher, I feel very fortunate to come in contact with such committed and inspired educators and administrators every day as I meet with our clients in Maine. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon and helping you to find a few more hours in the day.  Happy Spring! 

Adori Super User Forums

Please join us for an interactive, open discussion about proposed improved functionality for Adori goals and objectives.  MSB plans to host a series of very targeted "focus groups" with our Adori users to identify and propose enhancements to the areas that you use most.  We have heard the suggestions and now we are in a position to invite you to be a part of the discussion.  


The forums are targeted for those who use the IEP and Goals and Objectives work spaces most frequently.

End of year Lumea reminders:
For those districts using Lumea, here some end of the year reminders:
  1. Make sure Service Providers have logged and posted all sessions for Medicaid covered services provided
  2. Make sure Administrators have performed Student Identity Verification so these pending kids are made active and are billable
  3. Make sure Administrators have set the "Okay to Bill Medicaid" flag to yes for those students you wish to bill
  4. Make sure Administrators have filled in updated parental consent date ranges (for districts tracking parent consent dates in Lumea)
  5. Make sure Administrators have updated Provider Credential date ranges
For a complete list, please do not hesitate to contact your Program Specialist.
