   11         Section 1. Subsection (5) of section 409.9072, Florida
   12  Statutes, is amended to read:
   13         409.9072 Medicaid provider agreements for charter schools
   14  and private schools.—
   15         (5) For reimbursements to private schools and charter
   16  schools under this section, the agency shall apply the
   17  reimbursement schedule developed under s. 409.9071(5). Health
   18  care practitioners engaged by a school to provide services under
   19  this section must be enrolled as Medicaid providers and meet the

   25  upon the school providing to the agency an annual accounting of
   26  how the Medicaid reimbursements are used.
   27         Section 2. This act shall take effect July 1, 2020.
