Single placement costs applied towards the threshold for reimbursements from the extraordinary cost pool for nonpublic schools and licensed children’s institutions will also be applied to this threshold.

If the total reimbursable amount exceeds the current year appropriation, funds will be used to first reimburse residential costs and claims for other mental health related costs will be prorated.
