Administration of Medical Assistance Services [12 VAC 30 ‑ 20]
Action:
Settlement Agreement Discussion Process
 
General Information
Action Summary This regulatory action establishes a more formalized process by which to address administrative settlement agreements in a timely fashion. The proposed new regulation, 12 VAC 30-20-550, describes the process for settlement agreement discussions between a Medicaid provider and the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) and how it affects the time periods currently set forth in the existing informal and formal appeal regulations at 12 VAC 30-20-500 et. seq. The proposed amendments to 12 VAC 30-20-540 and 12 VAC 30-20-560 are necessary for these sections to be consistent with the proposed new regulation, 12 VAC 30-20-550. The amendments affect the timelines for issuing either the informal decision in an informal administrative appeal or recommended decision of the hearing officer in a formal administrative appeal when the proposed new regulation 12 VAC 30-20-550 pertaining to the settlement agreement process is used.
