Title or Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 16-0011 Behavior Rehabilitation Rates.
Effective Date: On or after April 21, 2016.
Description: The health care authority in conjunction with the children's administration in the department of social and health services intends to submit medicaid SPA 16-0011 in order to update the effective date of the behavior rehabilitation 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. SPA 16-0011 will also update the link to the fee schedule.
The children's administration and the agency anticipate that updating the effective date of the fee schedule will have no effect on annual aggregate expenditures.
The SPA is in the development process; therefore a copy is not yet available for review. To contact the children's administration for additional information and a copy of the SPA when it becomes available, please contact Shannon Mathis, Cost Allocation and Audit Unit Manager, 1115 Washington Street S.E., Olympia, WA 98504, phone (360) 902-7912, TDD/TTY 1-877-833-6341, fax (306) [(360)] 902-7903, e-mail
