2000 Group Two Exception Requests Medical Assistance Long-Term Care Participation Review

[31 Pa.B. 1924]

   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 in the Pennsylvania Bulletin on January 10, 1998 (28 Pa.B. 138), and is codified at 55 Pa. Code § 1187.21a.

   By this notice, published under 55 Pa. Code § 1187.21a(e)(4), the Department announces the 2000 Group Two Exception Requests covering the submission period of July 1, 2000, through December 31, 2000.
