Interstate compact administrators improve interstate practice.

During the past year, the Association of Administrators of the Interstate Compact on Adoption and Medical Assistance (AAICAMA) has focused on improving interstate practice and facilitating the provision of Medicaid to eligible adoption assistance recipients placed outside their adoption assistance state.

To this end, AAICAMA has conducted webinar trainings for its members on: Improving ICAMA Administration and Interstate Provision of Medicaid to Title IV-E and State-Funded Adoption Assistance-Eligible Children. Each was followed by an open question and answer session. AAICAMA officers also presented a webinar on Obtaining Medicaid for Non-Title IV-E Adoption Assistance Children in Interstate Situations. The presentation was hosted by the National Resource Center on Adoption and attended by state adoption, AAICAMA, and AAICPC staff across the country.

In addition, AAICAMA is partnering with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to obtain clarification on two key interstate challenges: (1) the provision of Medicaid to recipients of Title IV-E adoption assistance past age 18 when placed in states that provide adoption assistance (and Medicaid) only to age 18; and (2) obtaining Medicaid for state-funded adoption assistance recipients when they move outside the adoption assistance state.

The association is also working with members to promote uniform, national forms and procedures for the interstate transfer of Medicaid to children receiving Title IV-E guardianship assistance payments.
