Association Asks CMS to Formally Withdraw MFAR

America’s Essential Hospitals on Nov. 4 sent a letter to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Seema Verma asking the administration to formally withdraw the Medicaid Fiscal Accountability Regulation (MFAR).

In mid-September, Verma withdrew MFAR via a tweet, citing stakeholder concerns. However, MFAR still is listed on the agency’s spring 2020 unified agenda. America’s Essential Hospitals has requested that CMS formally withdraw MFAR to avoid the significant challenges the regulation would cause essential hospitals, especially in light of the public health emergency. The association explained how this formal step would be the best course of action for both CMS and stakeholders, and cited precedent for the formal withdraw process.
