MAA stands for Medi-Cal Administrative Activities. California established its Medi-Cal Administrative Activities Program (MAA) in 1994. the program is operated through the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). MAA claims are reimbursement for the administrative activities including: Medi-Cal insurance outreach and enrollment, referral to Medi-Cal services, program planning and collaboration of health and Medi-Cal services for the District and certain administrative activities that improve and support Medi-Cal services to children. Reimbursements are returned to the District as General Fund monies.
In order to claim this reimbursement, the District is required to implement a quarterly time survey methodology completed by District employees designated as MAA participants. In 2010, LAUSD was approved to conduct a methodology for the MAA program called Random Moment Time Survey (RMTS). The LAUSD is the first, and currently the only, school district in California approved by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) to conduct the MAA program using RMTS.
