DAR File No.: 39342

NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Section 26-1-18 designates the Utah Department of Health as the health, health planning, and medical assistance authority of the state and as the sole state agency for administration of federally assisted state programs or plans for public health, health planning, maternal and child health, crippled children's services, and medical assistance. The Conrad State 30 J-1 Visa Waiver Program is a federally-assisted program managed by the Utah Department of Health.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
No comments have been received on the Conrad 30 J-1 Visa Waiver Program from the State, local governments, small businesses, or other persons other than businesses.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
The Conrad 30 J-1 Visa Waiver Program addresses the shortage of qualified physicians in medically underserved areas. Applicants must obtain sponsorship from the State Health Department. This rule outlines the sponsorship requirements. The rule needs to be continued in order for the Utah Department of Health to process applications to U.S. Department of State.
