COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA

DEPARTMENT OF MEDICAL ASSISTANCE SERVICES

NOTICE OF INTENT TO AMEND

 

(Pursuant to §1902(a)(13) of the Act (U.S.C. 1396a(a)(13))

 

THE VIRGINIA STATE PLAN FOR MEDICAL ASSISTANCE

 

This Notice was posted on March 14, 2024

 

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). A copy of this notice is available for public review from Jimeequa H. Williams, DMAS, 600 Broad Street, Suite 1300, Richmond, VA  23219, or via e-mail at: jimeequa.williams@dmas.virginia.gov. 

 

DMAS is specifically soliciting input from stakeholders, providers and beneficiaries, on the potential impact of the proposed changes discussed in this notice.  Comments or inquiries may be submitted, in writing, within 30 days of this notice publication to Jimeequa H. Williams and such comments are available for review at the same address. Comments may also be submitted, in writing, on the Town Hall public comment forum attached to this notice.

 

This notice is available for public review on the Regulatory Town Hall (https://townhall.virginia.gov) on the General Notices page, found at:  https://townhall.virginia.gov/L/generalnotice.cfm

 

Methods & Standards for Establishing Payment Rates-Other Types of Care (12 VAC 30-80)

 

DMAS is revising the state plan to remove redundant and unnecessary language. DMAS submitted a previous state plan amendment (SPA) related to School Services (SPA 21-017), which was approved by CMS on September 26, 2023.  In that SPA, DMAS inadvertently included some of the old school services text, intended for removal. Consequently, this SPA will repeal the outdated language which is duplicative and unnecessary.
