Stakeholder Training and Education

New in April 2016

Beginning in April 2016, for individuals applying for or renewing Apple Health (Medicaid) coverage and enrolling into a managed care organization, Health Care Authority (HCA) will backdate the effective date of enrollment into a managed care plan to the first day of the month in which a client is eligible. HCA will send additional information in future Provider Alerts.
