What are Medi-Cal Administrative Activities (MAA)?
Medi-Cal Administrative Activities (MAA) provides federal reimbursement for the cost of performing administrative activities that support efforts to identify and enroll potentially eligible individuals into Medi-Cal and to promote and assist with access to Medi-Cal covered services.
Where is MAA Applied?
There are four types of MAA in California:
The MAA program is administered by the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) and each type of MAA has its own set of policies and procedures for its implementation. Programs performing MAA are reimbursed a portion of the certified public expenditures expended by the governmental agencies.
Why is Reliable Time Tracking So Important?
- Both MAA and TCM require that participants perpetually time survey for all their paid time.
- Efficient time tracking has proven overwhelming for many who continue to utilize a paper-based orinconsistent approach.
- Programs that have implemented an electronic method for tracking time – such as Persimmony Time Study – have a greater likelihood of reimbursement success.
