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 26-18-3 requires the Department of Health to implement the Medicaid program through administrative rules, which include the provision of long-term care services to facility residents. In addition, 42 CFR 483.10(c)(3)(i) requires facilities to deposit resident funds over $50 in a separate interest-bearing account.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

The Department did not receive any written or oral comments regarding this rule.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The Department will continue this rule because it requires long-term care facilities to manage and safeguard a resident's personal funds.
