Arkansas Medicaid Administrative Claiming (ARMAC)

The Arkansas Medicaid Administrative Claiming (ARMAC) program provides reimbursement to school districts for certain administrative services, which address student health needs. ARMAC is the online Random Moment Time Study system used to identify and categorize Medicaid administrative activities performed by Arkansas public school employees. The time study serves as the basis for developing claims based on the costs of administrative activities that may be reimbursed by Medicaid. Medicaid Administrative Claiming is a reimbursement of funds already expended by the school district related to activities that are in support of the Arkansas Medicaid program. Participating school districts are reimbursed quarterly for the costs incurred in providing allowable Medicaid administrative activities. 

The revenue generated by the ARMAC program is dedicated to the provision of health services and may be used to facilitate, improve and expand the level and quality of health and medical services provided to all students within the district.
