In a tweet on Jan. 7 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Seema Verma announced that the proposed Medicaid Fiscal Accountability Rule (MFAR) would be removed from the Federal Register and not finalized. NADP commented in opposition to the rule, focusing on the potential expansion of the definition of “permissible class” of healthcare for the purposes of Medicaid related taxes to include dental benefits plans.

Verma had previously announced the rule would be withdrawn but left the MFAR rule in the federal register, which meant it could have technically still been finalized.

Please send questions to Sr. Government Affairs Analyst Owen Urech.
