Local health jurisdictions

Local health jurisdictions are eligible for partial reimbursement for the time their staff spend performing Medicaid administrative activities.

MAC LHJ Overview

Eligible activities include:

  • Assisting individuals in applying for or renewing Medicaid to provide information.
  • Explaining the Medicaid program and covered services.
  • Assisting individuals in accessing Medicaid covered services.

Staff participate in a quarterly Random Moment Time Study to determine the amount of time they spend performing Medicaid administrative activities. The Washington State Association of Local Public Health Officials operates the web-based time study. The association is available to provide system related technical assistance.

The Health Care Authority (HCA) manages the local health jurisdiction Medicaid Administrative Claiming Program and is responsible for oversight and monitoring of the program. HCA is available to provide program assistance as needed.
