Current regulations require that Medicaid State agencies give 60 days public notice of certain proposed changes in the Statewide method or level of reimbursement for Medicaid services. These amended rules eliminate reference to a set waiting period between the date of public notice and the proposed effective date of the change. In addition, the regulations clarify that the public notice provision applies only to significant changes in methods and standards for setting payment rates. We expect this revision in the regulations will reduce the regulatory burden on the States and allow them greater flexibility in developing reimbursement methodologies and in adjusting reimbursement rates in response to changing fiscal situations. At the same time, it retains a public notice requirement to assure that interested parties are informed of Medicaid reimbursement changes.
