Pursuant to Virginia Code §2.2-4007, I write to request a regulation that mandates a firm deadline for DMAS to respond to requests for final lien amounts asserted against personal injury claims proceeds and arising from the Medicaid program or any other DMAS program. I request that this regulation contain all contact information and documents necessary to trigger the deadline, and that upon passing of said deadline, the amount owed is deemed zero dollars.
