Agency (LGA) and the California Department of Health Services (DHS).

What is it all about?
MAA reimburses County Offices of Education, school districts and community colleges for the
Administrative Activities that directly support efforts to identify and enroll potential eligibles into the
Medi-Cal program and assist with access to Medi-Cal covered services

What kind of activities are reimbursed?
Administrative Activities that facilitate enrollment into Medi-Cal and assisting eligibles to access Medi-
Cal services such as:
• Outreach     • Facilitating Applications      • Translation   • Transportation      • Program Planning

How can my district participate?
LEAs contract with their LEC/LGA, time survey, complete a grid, invoice and maintain an audit file.

What is the LEC?
Local Educational Consortium.

How does the LEC assist my LEA?
      Assess the MAA program to ensure appropriate participation.
      Provide technical assistance training to the LEA staff.
      Oversee the LEA time survey process.
      Submit detailed quarterly invoices to DHS on behalf of the LEA.
      Review the Operational Plan for quality assurance and compliance.
      Offer customer support, both program and fiscal.
      Monitor compliance of LEA with all Federal, State and DHS program requirements.
      Represent the LEA at the LEC level and in workgroup meetings.

How does my LEA get issues resolved?
Contact your LEC. Regional LEC contracts are required by DHS to represent regional LEAs. Each
LEC/LEA contract further clarifies how LEA assistance is provided. LEAs who have contracts with
LGAs must go through their LGA for assistance.
Contact your regional LEC for technical assistance
