Health and Human Services announced on June 29 that they are rescinding or delaying some Medicaid regulations made in recent years, including:
- Rescinding a rule that would have eliminated reimbursement for school-based administrative costs and costs of transportation to and from schools.
- Rescinding a rule that would have limited the outpatient hospital and clinic service benefit for Medicaid beneficiaries.
- Rescinding provisions of an interim final rule which would have restricted beneficiary access to case management services.
- Delaying until June 20, 2010 the enforcement of portions of a regulation that clarified limitations on health care related tax programs.
