Medicaid Update: Transmittal 16-08 - Clarifying Procedures for Obtaining Prior Authorizations for Home Health Services

Wednesday, March 30, 2016

The Department of Health Care Finance (DHCF) is developing new State Plan Amendments (SPAs) and Regulations for Home Health Services.

In the interim, DHCF is clarifying existing federal regulations and State Plan requirements by notifying Home Health Agencies (HHAs) of their responsibility when Home Health Services are provided under the District’s Medicaid State Plan. Until the new SPAs and Regulations are finalized, DHCF expects Home Health Agencies (HHAs) to comply with existing requirements.
