SPA 19-0009 Transitional Medical Assistance (TMA) submitted to CMS

State Plan Amendment (SPA) 19-0009 Transitional Medical Assistance (TMA) has been submitted to allow the Division of Medicaid to include language for a less restrictive transitional medical assistance (TMA) reporting allowed under Section 1931 of the Social Security Act (SSA). The Division of Medicaid has processed TMA in this manner since 1997 but this provision was superseded by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) with the SPA page being obsolete. This SPA will allow the Division of Medicaid to continue Medicaid eligibility under TMA for an initial period of twelve (12) months effective January 1, 2019.

For more information see the SPA draft pages.
