Q: I participated last year and know what I’m doing already. Why must I train again this year? • Answer: All employees who participated last year must train AGAIN this year. Training EVERY YEAR is mandatory. Your Region 7 LEC receives their annual training from DHCS each July and are provided with updates which are then conveyed to you in your annual training. Your deadline to receive your training is “prior to the 3rd MAA quarter.” Q: If I know the MAA Program well and have participated many times, can I train people? • Answer: You are not eligible to be a trainer this year until you have received your training this year from the Region 7 LEC. Q: What if this is my first time participating in MAA? What is my training deadline, and who must train me? • Answer: If this if your first time participating , you must be trained BEFORE you begin your first time survey. Your trainer must have received their annual training THIS YEAR by the Region 7 LEC. They are not eligible to train you this year until this happens (even if they have been participating for many years. EACH YEAR starts everyone’s training requirements all over again. What is MAA & how do I participated? • MAA stands for “Medi-Cal Administrative Activities.” • Schools promote access to health care for students, preventing costly or long-term health care problems for at-risk students, and coordinating students’ health care needs with other providers. • The program allows school claiming units to be reimbursed for some of their administrative costs associated with school-based health and outreach activities that are not claimable under the LEA Medi-Cal Billing Option or under other Medi-Cal. • In general, the cost of school-based health and outreach activities reimbursed under MAA consists of: referring students/families for Medi-Cal eligibility determinations, providing health care information and referral, coordinating and monitoring health services, and coordinating services between agencies. • How to participate? It is necessary to determine the amount of time school staff spend performing MAA. Time spent by school staff on MAA is identified using a time survey. The results of the time survey is then used in a series of calculations to determine the percentage of school costs that can be claimed under MAA. MAA reimbursement to school claiming units is made from federal Medicaid funds.
