CMS withdraws HANYS-opposed Medicaid fiscal accountability rule
This week, as urged by HANYS, CMS Administrator Seema Verma announced that the agency will withdraw its Medicaid fiscal accountability proposed rule.
We vigorously opposed the rule via a HANYS-led New York congressional delegation effort, comment letter and other activities in collaboration with the State of New York and partners in Washington. This rule would have substantially changed how state Medicaid programs are financed and how hospitals and other providers are reimbursed by Medicaid for care provided to beneficiaries.
HANYS appreciates that the administration listened to HANYS and the many other stakeholders who weighed in on this rule. We are particularly grateful for our congressional delegation’s support and engagement.
However, our work is not done. In her announcement, Administrator Verma stated that the rule requires further study. HANYS will continue to educate lawmakers on the importance of the state-federal Medicaid financing partnership and the impact it has on patients. Contact: Cristina Batt
