Program Development and Quality Assurance

Program Development and Quality Assurance

The Program Development and Quality Assurance (PD/QA) unit develops and maintains the Arkansas Medicaid State Plan and Child Health Insurance Program State Plan.

PD/QA develops and writes policy manuals for each of Arkansas Medicaid’s more than 50 programs. These manuals describe provider enrollment requirements, covered services, benefit limits, benefit-extension procedures, prior-authorization requirements, and billing procedures.

PD/QA also develops, maintains and monitors all Medicaid waiver programs. These programs include demonstration waivers (such as ARKids First), all Home- and Community-Based Services waiver programs (such as the ElderChoices and Alternatives waivers), and other waiver programs such as the transportation waiver. The unit is also responsible for the associated provider manuals.
