OF THE STATE OF MONTANA
In the matter of the amendment of ARM 37.79.304 pertaining to clarifying contents of Healthy Montana Kids (HMK) evidence of coverage and adopting the Medicaid ambulance contracts
CORRECTED NOTICE OF
TO: All Concerned Persons
1. On June 23, 2017, the Department of Public Health and Human Services (department) published MAR Notice No. 37-743 pertaining to the public hearing on the proposed amendment of the above-stated rule at page 861 of the 2017 Montana Administrative Register, Issue Number 12. On October 13, 2017, the department published the notice of amendment at page 1905 of the 2017 Montana Administrative Register, Issue Number 19.
2. This amendment to ARM 37.79.304 remains as adopted.
3. A comment was received for this rulemaking; however, it was not responded to in the final notice of adoption. The department is correcting the adoption notice by adding the following comment and the response:
COMMENT #1: One commenter was concerned that the Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) benefit, which was coupled with habilitative services in Senate Bill 199 (SB199), was not included in the MAR Notice No. 37-743 filing.
RESPONSE #1: The process for oversight and administration of the ABA benefit is still in development in conjunction with the Medicaid program. There will be a future rulemaking to include services for autism, including ABA, and align the HMK benefit with Medicaid.
4. The replacement pages for this corrected notice will be submitted to the Secretary of State on December 31, 2017.
