Medicaid Fiscal Accountability Proposed Regulation (MFAR)

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a proposed Medicaid Fiscal Accountability Regulation on November 11th, 2019 that impacts provider assessments and upper payment limit (UPL) programs. While CMS states its aim is to "eliminate state financing gimmicks," it is important to note that CMS is not proposing to eliminate provider tax, inter-governmental transfers (IGT), and supplemental payments. Nevertheless, this rule would have significant negative impacts on funding.
