[Filed October 23, 2014, 6:48 a.m.]
Title or Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 14-0039 Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Rates.
Effective Date: November 1, 2014.
Description: The health care authority intends to submit a medicaid SPA to update ABA fee schedule, which will be effective November 1, 2014. This notice was previously published under SPA number 15-003; this SPA will now be submitted under number 14-0039. The reason for the update remains the same – only the SPA number has changed. The update is due to rate and coding changes that reflect new codes implemented by the American Medical Association and the Association for Behavior Analysis International. At this time, the agency is unable to determine whether there will be an increase or decrease in annual aggregate expenditures due to these changes.
