AAICAMA focuses on improving interstate practice.
Recently the work of the Association of Administrators of the Interstate Compact on Adoption and Medical Assistance has focused on improving interstate practice and compact administration among states.
* In 2011, AAICAMA expanded its web site by adding a series of frequently asked questions (FAQs) on Adoption Assistance and Medicaid Programs to improve members' understanding of their application in interstate cases.
* The association is also updating and streamlining its standard forms to simplify use and increase timely receipt of Medicaid interstate.
* AAICAMA also continues to provide ongoing technical assistance to state and local practitioners and parents and has scheduled a training session on Compact administration for California county liaisons in March.
* In addition, the association is working with members and with NAPCWA to identify standard, national forms and procedures for processing new interstate guardianship assistance (GAP) cases to eliminate any interruptions in Medicaid.
* In February, AAICAMA submitted a letter to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services requesting clarification about the receipt of Medicaid by adoption-assistance-eligible children with agreements in effect past age 18 when placed in states that do not offer adoption assistance beyond age 18.
