Title or Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 15-0010.
Effective Date: January 1, 2015.
Description: The health care authority intends to submit medicaid SPA 15-0010 to update the language regarding the effective dates for the fee schedules for physician/professional services and dental services. This language is being updated at the request of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in order to bring consistency to the reimbursement language in the state plan, as well as to minimize the frequency of submitting SPAs simply to change a fee schedule effective date. This SPA is not anticipated to increase or decrease annual aggregate expenditures.
