WORK WITH US
At our core, we believe that a culture of compliant and maximized documentation is within every district’s reach. It’s going to take a lot of commitment and it’s going to be worthwhile. We are signing up for that journey with you because we can’t wait to see how you leverage it to grow your district’s impact.

MSB is not new to the educational realm, but our approach is. Since we began serving school districts 25 years ago, we have learned how to make this program work in a way that makes certain that the return is worth the effort. Our drive toward Medicaid excellence is stronger than ever and our motivation is the impact we believe educators can have on the world when obstacles that could slow them down are removed from their path.

School districts have instilled in us the power of transparency, the importance of authenticity, the result of hard work, and the strength of pursuit required to become a better company for them, one day at a time. MSB has and will continue to transform to serve our clients across the state where they need us the most: through Medicaid excellence.

We are raving fans of educators and strive to be the type of people, and to provide the level of service that makes them raving fans of us. To know the educators we work with is to know who we aspire to be.
