The Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) hereby affords the public notice of its intention to amend the Virginia State Plan for Medical Assistance to provide for changes to the Methods and Standards for Establishing Payment Rates — Other Types of Care (12 VAC 30-80).

This notice is intended to satisfy the requirements of 42 C.F.R. § 447.205 and of § 1902(a)(13) of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1396a(a)(13).

The Upper Mattaponi Tribe has established a Tribal Health Clinic (THC) to meet the primary care health needs of Tribal members, including those enrolled in Virginia Medicaid. Federal law requires DMAS to file a SPA to recognize and reimburse THCs as Medicaid providers. The THC will be enrolled as a Federally Qualified Health Center and will be reimbursed for services to Medicaid members at a rate set annually by the federal government. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will cover 100% of DMAS’ payments to the Upper Mattaponi THC for services to Medicaid members.

There is no expected increase in annual aggregate expenditures.
