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 establishes the Department as the single state agency responsible for the administration of the Medicaid program in connection with the United States Department of Health and Human Services pursuant to Title XIX of the Social Security Act. Section 26-18-3 also requires the Department to enact administrative rules to implement Medicaid programs. Section 1115 of the Social Security Act authorizes the Division to establish waiver programs to provide services not otherwise available to Medicaid clients. The Primary Care Network (PCN) Services program is a waiver program allowed under Section 1115 of the Social Security Act, which the Department implements under these statutes.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
Written comments from PCN clients indicate that they wish PCN services to continue.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
This rule is necessary because it specifies the services available under the PCN. This rule also details the cost sharing provisions for PCN clients. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
