The Department of Heath and Human Services (HHS) has published a proposed rule that would amend regulations governing administrative review by the DAB and certain other administrative review regulations to ensure that final administrative decisions reflect the considered opinion of the HHS Secretary. Specifically, the rule would require that the DAB follow published guidance that is consistent with applicable statutes and regulations and would permit the Secretary an opportunity to review DAB decisions to correct errors in the application of law or deviations from published guidance. Comments will be accepted on the proposal until January 28, 2008.
