Policy Brief: Electronic Signatures for California’s MAA Program

The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) will begin accepting electronic signatures in lieu of manual ‘blue ink’ signatures on Medi-Cal Administrative Activities (MAA) and Targeted Case Management (TCM) program time surveys beginning July 1, 2012 (DHCS PPL 12-009, April 2012). This brief explores the question of compliance as it relates to the criteria for electronic signatures as outlined in PPL 12-009 and includes several resources for additional research into other states employing similar requirements for their school Medicaid reimbursement programs.
