CMS Sends Medicaid Pass-Through Payment Proposed Rule to OMB

Oct. 19, 2016: CMS submitted to the Office of Management and Budget for review a proposed rule that would presumably limit the ability of states to create new or increased pass-through payments to providers in their Medicaid managed care programs.  The agency indicated its intent to issue this rule in an Informational Bulletin released just after the issuance of the final Medicaid managed care regulations authorizing temporary pass-through payments.
