The Department of Public Welfare (Department), by statement of policy effective December 18, 1996, adopted an interim policy announcing that, as a general matter, it intended to exercise its discretion to refuse to enter into new Medical Assistance (MA) provider agreements and to terminate any provider of MA nursing facility services that sought to increase the number of MA certified nursing facility beds through expansion, unless the Department granted an exception on a case-by-case basis to permit that provider to enroll or expand. A statement of policy that sets forth the guidelines the Department will use when making its case-by-case exception request decisions was published at 28 Pa.B. 138 (January 10, 1998) and is codified at 55 Pa. Code § 1187.21a (relating to nursing facility exception requests--statement of policy).
