California Tribal Medi-Cal Administrative Activities
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:
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: Code 4 – Initial Medi-Cal Outreach Code 6 – Facilitating Application Code 8 – Ongoing Referral, Coordination & Monitoring of Medi-Cal Services Code 10 – Arranging Transportation for Medi-Cal Services Code 14 – Translation Related to Medi-Cal Services Code 16 – Program Planning, Policy Development & Interagency Coordination (PPPD) Code 17 – Medi-Cal Administrative Activities (MAA) Coordination and Claims Administration
