Title or Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 20-0007 April 2020 Fee Schedule Effective Date Updates.
Effective Date: April 1, 2020.
Description: The health care authority (HCA) intends to submit medicaid SPA 20-0007 to update the fee schedule effective dates for several medicaid programs and services, and update the name of a service. This is a regular, budget neutral update to keep rates and billing codes in alignment with the coding and coverage changes from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the state, and other sources. These changes are routine and do not reflect significant changes to policy or payment. SPA 20-0007 addresses the following:
|•||Ambulatory surgery center services.|
|•||Medication assisted treatment - changing name to medication for opioid use disorder.|
|•||Outpatient hospital services.|
|•||Other services that may be subsequently identified.|
SPA 20-0007 is expected to have no effect on the annual aggregate expenditures/payments for the services listed above. These changes are routine and do not reflect significant changes to policy or payment.
HCA is in the process of developing the SPA. HCA would appreciate any input or concerns regarding this SPA.
