County Board agrees to continue to bill Medi-Cal for admin costs


Imperial County health departmentEL CENTRO – The Imperial County Public Health Department has participated in claiming Medi-Cal Administrative Activities (MAA) reimbursement for more than fifteen years.

The MAA program includes administrative activities necessary for the proper and efficient administration of the Medi-Cal program and allows the Public Health Department and the local school districts to recover a portion of the unreimbursed cost of Medi-Cal outreach and referral activities.

To continue this arrangement, for the Public Health Department, and local schools that sub-contract with Public Health for their services, the Board of Supervisors authorized the chairman to sign the School-Based Medi-Cal Administrative Activities Agreement and to sign a MOU with participation school districts.

The maximum amount of this agreement for the county is $3,600,000.
