California School-Based Medi-Cal Administrative Activities (SMAA) Program Deferral Resolution Approval Letter

Effective October 23, 2013, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has granted approval to the California  Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) for the methodology developed to resolve all deferred costs for school based administrative claims and a request to permit interim claiming for school based administrative costs incurred during State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2013/2014.

DHCS established a reasonableness test criteria (RTC) methodology for all deferred invoices for costs incurred prior to July 1, 2012 which were claimed by DHCS on the CMS-64 reports after federal fiscal year 2011.  The RTC will be posted to the SMAA Website no later than Wednesday, October 30, 2013.
