Title or Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 15-0041 Agency Organization.
Effective Date: October 1, 2015.
Description: The Washington state health care authority (the agency) is designated as the single state medicaid agency for the administration of funds from Title XIX of the Social Security [Act] and has final authority over medicaid programs. As such, the agency's organization and administration is described in the medicaid state plan. The agency intends to submit medicaid SPA 15-0041 to update that information to reflect recent organizational changes that became necessary to ensure staff, infrastructure, and data are set up to support the agency's move away from a fee-for-service model of purchasing to a managed care delivery structure.
SPA 15-0041 is anticipated to have no effect on annual aggregate expenditures.
The SPA is currently in development. For additional information contact HCA Realignment Design Team, HCA Realignment, 626 8th Avenue S.E., Olympia, WA 98501, TDD/TTY 1-800-848-5429, e-mail
