SMAA Deadlines Extended and Backcasting Updates from DHCS

DHCS has published meeting minutes from their RMTS Workgroup meeting held on April 19, 2017. Of particular interest:

  • SMAA invoice deadlines for 2015/16 Q1 and Q2 have been extended to July 31, 2017 and August 31, 2017 respectively
  • Backcasting invoices for claims in excess of $25,000 from FY 2009/10 and 2010/11 are still due by June 30, 2017 (although work cannot begin until the final set of RMTS percentages to backcast prior claims are finalized and released by LECs, LGAs, or Consortium)
  • LGAs that have stopped participating in the SMAA program but previously submitted claims for LEAs that are now subject to backcasting will be responsible for backcasting those claims. DHCS is reaching out to these LGAs and will keep any LEC who is now submitting claims on behalf of impacted LEAs in the loop.
