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 (Department) to implement the Medicaid program through administrative rules. In addition, 42 CFR 431.220 through 431.246 requires the Department to implement agency procedures for fair hearings and hearing rights for Medicaid members.
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 has not received 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 defines Medicaid programs, groups, and eligibility; spells out member rights and responsibilities in regard to application and enrollment; implements provisions to safeguard member information; allows members to request agency conferences and fair hearings to resolve problems; and implements provisions that allow the Department to contract with the Department of Human Services and the Department of Workforce Services to do eligibility determinations and provide fair hearings for Medicaid members.
