CMS published a proposed rule on August 3, 2011 that would implement statutory requirements and making technical corrections to various Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) regulatory provisions. Among other things, the proposed rule would: implement a new reconsideration process for administrative determinations to disallow Medicaid claims for federal financial participation (FFP); lengthen the time states have to credit the federal government for identified but uncollected Medicaid provider overpayments and provide for interest payment for amounts not credited within that time period; make conforming changes to the Medicaid and CHIP disallowance process to allow states the option to retain disputed federal funds through the new administrative reconsideration process (interest charges may accrue); and revise installment repayment standards and schedules for states that owe significant amounts. The rule also would make a technical correction to reporting requirements for disproportionate share hospital payments, revise internal delegations of authority, remove obsolete language, and correct other technical errors. Comments on the proposed rule will be accepted until September 2, 2011.
