State Medicaid Plan Amendments


State Policies & Initiatives: 
Medicaid & Employment

~~“The Medicaid State Plan is an agreement between the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the federal government describing how we administer our Medicaid program. It gives assurance that Kentucky will abide by federal rules and may claim federal matching funds for its program.  The state plan sets out groups to be covered, services, methodologies for reimbursing providers and state program administrative activities.
When Kentucky plans to make changes to its program policies or operations, the state Department for Medicaid Services must submit a state plan amendment (SPA) to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for review and approval. We also submit SPAs to request approval for program changes, make corrections or update our Medicaid plan with new information."
