The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Friday reopened the comment period for a 2020 interim final rule that set forth certain requirements for states to claim a temporary increase in federal matching funds for their Medicaid programs under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.

“In light of the possibility of changed circumstances since publication of the IFR and other policy considerations, CMS is considering modifying those requirements,” the notice states. “CMS is soliciting additional information from the public on any issues that may be pertinent to these potential modifications by reopening the public comment period for an additional 30 days.”
