Title or Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment TN# 11-31.

Effective Date: July 1, 2011.

Description: The medicaid program intends to submit a state plan amendment which will restore the medicaid payment rates for licensed boarding homes to the March 31, 2011, levels. A rate enhancement to cover the medicaid share of increased training costs is removed because of the delay in implementation of increased training requirements. This program is administered by home and community programs in the division of management services in the aging and disability services administration, in cooperation with the single state medicaid agency, the Washington state health care authority.
