Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 22-0022 Excess Home Equity Increase.
Effective Date: July 9, 2022.
Description: The health care authority (HCA) intends to submit SPA 22-0022 to increase the excess home equity limit when determining a person's eligibility for SSI-related long-term care services as described in WAC 182-513-1350, to the federal maximum allowed. On January 1 of each year, this standard may change by the percentage in the consumer price index for all consumers. The current maximum home equity limit is posted by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
SPA 22-0022 is expected to have no effect on the annual aggregate payment for providers.
SPA 22-0022 is in the development process; therefore, a copy is not yet available for review. HCA would appreciate any input or concerns regarding this SPA. To request a copy when it becomes available or submit comments, please contact the person named below (please note that all comments are subject to public review and disclosure, as are the names of those who comment).
