FROM: Cathy A. Cumpston, Medicaid Officer
Amendments to Rule 132 (59 Ill. Adm. Code 132) were published in the Illinois Register today. It is available online at http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/index/register/register_volume37_issue33.pdf.
The amendments primarily do two things.
- Expand the coverage for deemed status to more standards, see 132.91.
- Separate the certification processes so that each component is described separately in an effort to make the requirements clearer.
There is now a 45 day public comment period. Information on how and where to submit comments is included in the Illinois Register.
