CMS Issues Final Rule Limiting New Pass-Through Payments

Just prior to the end of the Obama administration, on January 18, 2017, CMS published a final rule limiting the ability of states to create new or increased pass-through payments to providers in their Medicaid managed care programs. The rule’s effective date was postponed by two days to March 20, 2017 by the Trump administration’s regulatory freeze, and could be subject to further delay or modification.
