California School Medi-Cal Administrative ActivitiesWebsite:

The Contra Costa County Office of Education has been involved in the
Medi-Cal Administrative Activities (MAA) program since 1999.

The County Office is the host entity for the Bay Region (Region 4) Local Educational Consortium (LEC) statewide MAA program. Region 4 is based on the California County Superintendent Educational Services Association (CCSESA) regions and serves Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo and Solano counties.

The MAA program allows school districts and county offices to be reimbursed federal dollars for costs incurred while performing certain administrative activities. Employees' record the time worked on these activities for one week each quarter, and then a claim is submitted based on the activities performed.

Administrative activities that facilitate enrollment into Medi-Cal and assisting students and families to access Medi-Cal services such as:

  • Outreach-Providing Medi-Cal information to students and their families. Initial referral of students to medical services.
  • Facilitating Applications-Referring or assisting families with the Medi-Cal application.
  • Monitoring, Coordination, or Referral to Medi-Cal covered services-Such as; speech, occupational therapy, physical therapy, counseling, and any follow-up on these issues.
  • Arranging Transportation to medical services within the community or IEP services at the school site.
  • Translation-Arranging or providing translation for medical services, e.g. speech, counseling.
  • Program Planning. Policy Development & Interagency Coordination-Developing strategies to improve the delivery or coordination of medical services.

Allowable costs may include the salaries and benefits of the staff performing the activities, applicable operating expenses, and appropriate overhead expenses. MAA is a Federal Financial Participation (FFP) program, which requires a non-federal match. Approved MAA costs are reimbursed at fifty percent (50%). Revenue is unrestricted!
