Obama Administration Rescinds Harmful Medicaid Regulations

Brain Artwork

On May 5, 2009, President Obama issued an order to rescind several Medicaid regulations including separate rules for school-based services as well as outpatient hospital services. Other harmful Medicaid regulations, including the rehabilitative services rule, were not yet finalized, and therefore did not need to be rescinded. On that front, the Obama Administration has given no indication that it plans to implement them in the future.

BIAA is thrilled that these harmful Medicaid regulations have been rescinded and that the Medicaid moratorium that BIAA had actively supported earlier this year will no longer be needed!
