11 Social Services may be expended only for mandatory services required under Title XIX of the                             
12 Social Security Act and for optional services offered by the state under the state plan for                             
13 medical assistance that has been approved by the United States Department of Health and                                 
14 Human Services. This statement is a statement of the purpose of the appropriation and is                                
15 neither merely descriptive language nor a statement of legislative intent.                                              
16 It is the intent of the legislature that the department continue implementing policies and                              
17 procedures to aggressively audit payments made to Medicaid service providers.  Audit                                    
18 procedures should be regulated to assure that findings are accurate and supported by                                    
19 documentary evidence. The use of statistical extrapolation techniques to calculate and                                  
20 determine overpayment errors are discouraged.  Procedures should be established to assure                               
21 that any proposed audit findings are thoroughly reviewed to exclude, where appropriate,                                 
22 errors in the audit process and providers' ministerial mistakes from overpayment calculations                           
23 prior to issuing any notice of findings to the provider.  Regulatory procedures must be                                 
24 established allowing providers a method for rebutting auditors' calculations.                                           
25 It is the intent of the legislature that the Department continues to aggressively pursue                                
26 Medicaid cost containment initiatives.  Efforts should continue where the Department                                    
27 believes additional cost containment is possible including further efforts to contain travel                            
28 expenses.  The Department must continue efforts imposing regulations controlling and                                    
29 materially reducing the cost of Personal Care Attendant (PCA) services.  Efforts must be                                
30 continued utilizing existing resources to impose regulations screening applicants for                                   
31 Residential Psychiatric Treatment Center (RPTC) services, especially for out-of-state                                   
01 services.  The department must address the entire matrix of optional Medicaid services,                                 
02 reimbursement rates and eligibility requirements that are the basis of the Medicaid growth                              
03 algorithm.  This work is to utilize the results of the Medicaid Assessment and Planning                                 
04 analysis.  The legislature requests that by January 2008 the Department be prepared to present                          
05 projections of future Medicaid funding requirements under our existing statute and regulations                          
06 and be prepared to present and evaluate the consequences of viable policy alternatives that                             
07 could be implemented to lower growth rates and reducing projections of future costs.                                    
08 It is the intent of the legislature that the Department of Health and Social Services actively                          
09 participate in the development and growth of Alaska's therapeutic courts.                                               
10 It is the intent of the legislature that the department evaluate establishing an asset test to be                       
11 incorporated in Denali KidCare and Child Care Benefits programs' eligibility determinations                             
12 that includes the value of assets leased and not owned by the applicant.  The department                                
13 should report to the legislature, no later than January 15, 2008, possible asset test structures,                       
14 their projected consequences on program participants and any necessary changes to statute,

17 It is the intent of the legislature that the Department maintain regulations requiring all                              
18 residents of the Pioneer Homes to apply for all appropriate benefit programs prior to a state                           
19 subsidy being provided for their care from the State Payment Assistance program.                                        
20 It is the intent of the legislature that all pioneers' homes and veterans' homes applicants shall                       
21 complete any forms to determine eligibility for supplemental program funding, such as

23 is not able to complete the forms him/herself, or if relatives or guardians of the applicant are                        
24 not able to complete the forms, Department of Health and Social Services staff may complete

09 performance should be measured and incorporated into the decision whether to continue
