As of July 1, 2020, the Department of Health Care Services will use the Random Moment Time Survey (RMTS) methodology for both California School-Based Medi-Cal Programs: the Local Educational Agency Medi-Cal Billing Option Program (LEA BOP) and the School-Based Medi-Cal Administrative Activities program (SMAA). The RMTS is a federally approved, web-based, and accepted statistical sampling method that will be used to capture the amount of time spent providing both administrative activities and direct services to Medi-Cal enrolled students.

This webpage contains information and​ resources to assist LEAs with the administration of RMTS for both school-based programs. For specific program information relating to either the LEA BOP or SMAA Program, please visit their respective websites listed at the top of the page.
