Title or Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 16-0020.
Effective Date: April 1, 2016.
Description: The health care authority (the agency) intends to submit medicaid SPA 16-0020 to update the effective date of the dental services fee schedule. This is a regular update to keep rates and billing codes in alignment with the coding and coverage changes from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, medicaid, and other sources. Two codes are listed erroneously in the fee schedule and will be removed: 41899 is not covered under the dental program, and D9630 is listed under an age range (21+) for which it is not covered.
The agency anticipates that updating the effective date of the fee schedule and removing two erroneously listed codes will have no effect on annual aggregate expenditures.
