The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced that it is voluntarily extending until August 1, 2008 the current statutory moratorium on the implementation of two Medicaid rules (the current moratorium expired May 25, 2008). The two rules in question pertain to Graduate Medical Education (published on May 23, 2007) and Cost Limit for Providers Operated by Units of Government and Provisions to Ensure the Integrity of Federal-State Financial Partnership (May 29, 2007). HHS wants to use this time to address Congressional concerns about the impact of the regulations in light of pending legislation to extend the current moratorium.
