State Funded ALTSA services

Revised March 4, 2014

State funded residential (G01)

ALTSA has a small state funded residential program that does not require CN eligibility.  It is under the MCS medical program and state-funded payments to the provider.  The functional requirements are the same as MPC.  The ACES program used is G01.  This program is described in WAC 388-106-0905.  This program is used for legally admitted citizens in their five year bar or individuals who are Primary residents under color of law (PROCULS). 

As of 1/1/2014, all individuals that are eligible for federal medicaid because of meeting citizenship requirements have been moved to the Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) expanded adult group. (N05).  These cases are maintained by the Health Benefit Exchange (HBE).
