AHA Comments on CMS' Medicaid Fiscal Accountability Regulation Proposed Rule

AHA comments on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ proposed regulation related to Medicaid program financing and supplemental payments. Given that the proposal would severely curtail the availability of health care services to millions of individuals and because many of its provisions are not legally permissible, the AHA requests that the agency withdraw the proposed rule in its entirety.
