MFAR Withdrawn from the Federal Register

CMS; Medicaid

​The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Seema Verma recently announced that the proposed Medicaid Fiscal Accountability Rule (MFAR) has been withdrawn from the federal register.

Thousands of long term care providers from across the country submitted comments to CMS on the rule's negative impact.​
