Reason for Recommended Action/Background
Pursuant to the authority granted by California Welfare and Institutions Code Section 16121.2 and Sections 16170-16175, California is a member of the Interstate Compact on Adoption and Medical Assistance (ICAMA).  The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) and the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), as the Compact Administrator and Compact Co-Administrator respectively, have entered into a MOU with the Association of Administrators of the Interstate Compact on Adoption and Medical Assistance (AAICAMA) for the implementation of a cloud based database (hereinafter “AAICAMA database”).  The AAICAMA database replaces the paper ICAMA 700 form and is used to open Medicaid cases between states for adopted special needs children.  AAICAMA has contracted with Blue Iron Network for services supporting the AAICAMA database.

The purpose of this MOU is to outline the terms and conditions for CDSS and DHCS to work with Counties of California for the implementation and utilization of the AAICAMA database to permit the transfer of information between states for establishment of medical benefits for children with adoption assistance agreements and for the provision of training and technical assistance for database users.   

This MOU is entered into by the CDSS and DHCS, and Yolo County (County) for the purpose of authorizing County access to the AAICAMA database.  This MOU authorizes County to facilitate the transfer of information between states for establishment of medical benefits for children with adoption assistance agreements through the AAICAMA database.
