Effective Date: July 1, 2016.
Description: The health care authority (the agency) intends to submit medicaid SPA 16-0015 to update the effective date of the applied behavior analysis (ABA) (intensive behavior) fee schedule. This is a regular, budget neutral update to keep rates and billing codes in alignment with the coding and coverage changes from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), medicaid, and other sources. This update will affect the following codes:

99368 XE
The agency anticipates that updating the codes and the effective date of the fee schedule will have no effect on annual aggregate expenditures.
