The California Tribal Medi-Cal
Administrative Activities (CTMAA) Program offers a way for Tribal Health Programs to obtain federal reimbursement for the cost of certain administrative activities necessary for the proper and efficient administration of the Medi-Cal program.

 

Examples of reimbursable administrative activities include:

  • Medi-Cal outreach;
  • Facilitating Medi-Cal application;
  • Medi-Cal related referral;
  • Medi-Cal related program planning and policy development;
  • Providing transportation to Medi-Cal services; and
  • General administrative activities

The goals of the MAA program are to:

  • Facilitate outreach to potential Medi-Cal enrollees;
  • Assist children and families in accessing needed Medi-Cal services;
  • Assist and support Tribes and Tribal Organizations to prepare appropriate claims for administrative costs under the Medi-Cal program; and
  • Administer an effective, efficient statewide MAA program.

Transportation:
In January 2009, CMS approved California’s Tribal Medi-Cal Administrative Activities Implementation plan.  In December 2009, CMS approved California’s Tribal MAA transportation invoice.  When providing individuals with non-emergency, non-medical transportation to Medi-Cal covered services, participating Tribal Program’s transporter must keep track of the mileage and actual time transporting.  The following form must be completed:

Combined Time Tracking and Mileage Tracking Log

For information only:
TMAA Transportation Invoice form:  MAA Coordinator completes this form and submits it to the MAA analyst in DHCS for processing the reimbursement.

MAA Specific Activities:

Non-transportation activities are called MAA Specific Activities. The invoice for this claim was approved in August 2010.  The following are the MAA Specific Activities Contract Codes:
