Proposed Rule 65A-1.7141, F.A.C., is aligning policy with the Medicaid State Plan by amending the unreimbursed medical expense deduction policy and adding an additional personal needs allowance. The Department is also adding the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), the Cystic Fibrosis waiver, iBudget Florida waiver and Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care Program and their respective income deduction policies. These policies are used to to determine the amount the Medicaid Agency must reduce its payments to nursing facilities and waiver providers for services provided to an individual towards their cost of care in the post eligibility determination process. If requested within 21 days of the Florida Administrative Register publication, a hearing will be held. If not requested, this hearing will not be held. For more information on the rule or to request special accommodations to participate, refer to the October 17, 2014, Vol. 40/203, Florida Administrative Register publication at https://www.flrules.org/default.asp.
