NAMD Seeks Flexibility on Federal Timelines from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
On May 26, 2020, NAMD sent a letter to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Seema Verma requesting flexibility on a variety of federal timelines for reporting and implementing regulations.
Medicaid agencies are critical components of state responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, and agency staff have rightly prioritized pandemic response over more routine work, including preparing for compliance with new federal regulations. NAMD wrote to CMS Administrator Seema Verma requesting extensions or flexibilities on several regulatory timelines, including the home- and community-based services settings rule, interoperability rules, 1115 waiver renewals, Payment Error Rate Measure (PERM) and Medicaid Eligibility Quality Control (MEQC) audit activities, demonstration grants, and the Medicaid Fiscal Accountability Regulation
