Essential Hospitals Praise Decision to Withdraw MFAR


Statement attributable to:
Beth Feldpush, DrPH
Senior Vice President of Policy and Advocacy
America’s Essential Hospitals

WASHINGTON—The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) made a wise and welcome decision today to withdraw its proposed Medicaid Fiscal Accountability Regulation (MFAR), especially as state budgets and providers strain under the heavy financial burden and economic fallout of COVID-19.

We thank CMS Administrator Seema Verma for hearing our concerns and recognizing the potential for this rule to undermine Medicaid and harm access to care. We appreciate her leadership and willingness to acknowledge the unintended consequences of this approach to regulating state Medicaid financing.

We also thank House and Senate members for raising bipartisan concerns with the administration about this damaging proposal. The nation’s essential hospitals and their low-income patients rely on Medicaid to make affordable, high-quality health care available to all. We must work to preserve and strengthen Medicaid and advance innovation in this vital safety-net program.
