Title or Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment 13-41.
Effective Date: October 1, 2013.
Description: The agency intends to submit medicaid state plan amendment (SPA) 13-43 to comply with 3ESSB 5034. This legislation directs the agency to eliminate the breast and cervical cancer treatment program (BCCTP) upon implementation of medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act, which begins January 1, 2014. To maintain continuity of coverage, the agency will offer the option to stay in a fee-for-service program to individuals who are already enrolled in BCCTP and who will be transitioned into the new adult group under medicaid expansion. The agency will continue to provide coverage to individuals already receiving BCCTP services at the time it is eliminated until their courses of treatment are completed.
For fiscal year (FY) 2014, these actions will result in a savings of state funds in the amount of $692,605; for FY 2015, $3,622,608. For FY 2014, these actions will result in an increase in the expenditure of federal funds in the amount of $480,874; for FY 2015, $991,182.
