You need to submit your most recent invoice from MMSST. If you are missing your most recent invoice, you can reach out to Pam Lonza to get an updated copy.
Am I still eligible for team fee reimbursement if Inspire Homeschool paid for a portion of my team fee?
If Inspire Homeschool paid for a portion of your team fee, you are eligible for reimbursement on the cost of the team minus the amount that Inspire paid for. For example, if your team fee was $1,700 and you paid for $600 with a check from Inspire, you are eligible for reimbursement on the remaining $1,100.
