Potential government shutdown

In the event of a federal government shutdown, individuals enrolled in Apple Health (Medicaid), Public Employees Benefits Board, and School Employees Benefits Board coverage—and those accessing behavioral health services—will not experience a disruption in care. In addition, health care providers will continue to be paid for the services they provide.

If a shutdown occurs, we will share more information at that time.

What we're working on

  • Health technology reviews
    Health technology reviews are scientific, evidence-based reports developed by the Health Care Authority. These reports are used by the Health Technology Clinical Committee (HTCC) and state agencies to determine conditions of coverage and covered services.
  • Topic selection
    This process determines the technologies that will be considered for assessment by the Health Technology Clinical Committee (HTCC).
  • Health Technology Clinical Committee (HTCC)
    Established by law in 2006, the HTCC makes coverage determinations for selected health technologies based on the available scientific evidence.
