Title or Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 16-0003.
Effective Date: January 1, 2016.
Description: The health care authority (the agency) intends to submit medicaid SPA 16-0003 to update the effective date of the dental services fee schedule. Fee schedules are updated on a regular basis, usually quarterly, based on coding and coverage information from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), medicare, and other sources. The medicaid state plan must be amended as necessary to reflect new effective dates.
The agency anticipates that updating the effective date of the fee schedule will have no effect on annual aggregate expenditures.
