Paper with Medicaid and stethoscope. Medical insurance concept.

NYLAG Submits Comments on proposed CMS “Sunset” Regulation.

In its last days, the Trump Administration is continuing to try to sabotage the incoming Administration by tying the hands of new agency leadership and rolling back longstanding regulations.   The US Dept. of Health & Human Services (HHS) has proposed a “sunset regulation” that would retroactively impose a mandatory expiration date on an estimated 18,000 duly promulgated regulations for programs ranging from Medicaid and Medicare to the FDA and CDC. Even long-standing rules would be automatically rescinded unless they survive a complex process of assessment and review. Programs like Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) could be devastated if important regulations are arbitrarily rescinded.  NYLAG has joined the National Health Law Program and other organizations in submitting comments, pushing back against this unlawful and ill-conceived proposal designed to sabotage HHS safety net programs.
