The American Samoa State Plan is managed by the local CMS office under the direction of Ms. Sandra King-Young. The plan is currently being updated to include private medical providers. The inclusion of private medical providers into the American Samoa medicaid/medicare system will allow private medical providers (non LBJ provider) the ability to provide medical care to local American Samoans while at the same time, receive medicaid/medicare reimbursements for providing billable patient services. Enrollment of new medical service providers is scheduled to occur in June 2015. The enrollment process will also require that the new provider complete Services Agreement with LBJ Medical Center. Initial billing and reimbursement of services would go through LBJ. Direct reimbursement processing through the local CMS office is scheduled to occur in early 2016 whereby medical service providers will be able to bill and receive direct reimbursement from the local CMS office.
