RMTS for LEA Billing — Implementation Advisory Group Publishes November Meeting Summary

The Implementation Advisory Group (IAG) has published minutes from their November 8, 2016 meeting, and discussed the following topics:

  • The IAG members reviewed draft LEA Provider Manual language and suggested content placement related to incorporating RMTS information into the existing LEA Provider Manual. The IAG members will review an updated version of the proposed LEA Provider Manual language in the December IAG meeting.
  • Navigant Consulting provided an update on a pending SPA by Massachusetts to expand their population to include non-IEP/IFSP students.
  • The IAG discussed potential situations where an LEA job title may be different than the practitioner definition in the LEA Provider Manual (for example, teachers trained in a specialized physical health care services and providing THCA Services). The IAG discussed how these situations could impact the direct service cost pool and Time Survey Participant (TSP) list under RMTS.
  • The IAG planned for upcoming meetings, including discussion of a future meeting where LEC/LGA representatives will be invited by DHCS to attend and learn more about RMTS implementation in the LEA BOP and discuss items including contacting, coding and direct service TSP lists.

 

The next IAG meeting is scheduled for December 6, 2016.
