Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Federal Medical Assistance Percentages and Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:30 Nov 25, 2008 Jkt 217001 for Fiscal Year 2010 have been calculated pursuant to the Social Security Act (the Act). These percentages will be effective from October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2010. This notice announces the calculated ‘‘Federal Medical Assistance Percentages’’ and ‘‘Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages’’ that The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will use in determining the amount of Federal matching for State medical assistance (Medicaid) and State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) expenditures, and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Contingency Funds, the Federal share of Child Support Enforcement collections, Child Care Mandatory and Matching Funds of the Child Care and Development Fund, Foster Care Title IV–E Maintenance payments, and Adoption Assistance payments. The table gives figures for each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Programs under title XIX of the Act exist in each jurisdiction. Programs under titles I, X, and XIV operate only in Guam and the Virgin Islands, while a program under title XVI (Aid to the Aged, Blind, or Disabled) operates only in Puerto Rico. Programs under title XXI began operating in fiscal year 1998. The percentages in this notice apply to State expenditures for most medical services and medical insurance services, and assistance payments for certain social services. The statute provides separately for Federal matching of administrative costs. Sections 1905(b) and 1101(a)(8)(B) of the Act require the Secretary, HHS to publish the Federal Medical Assistance Percentages each year. The Secretary is to calculate the percentages, using formulas in sections 1905(b) and 1101(a)(8)(B), from the Department of Commerce’s statistics of average income per person in each State and for the Nation as a whole. The percentages are within the upper and lower limits given in section 1905(b) of the Act. The percentages to be applied to the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands are specified in statute, and thus are not based on the statutory formula that determines the percentages for the 50 States. The ‘‘Federal Medical Assistance Percentages’’ are for Medicaid. Section 1905(b) of the Act specifies the formula for calculating Federal Medical Assistance Percentages as follows: PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72051 ‘‘Federal medical assistance percentage’’ for any State shall be 100 per centum less the State percentage; and the State percentage shall be that percentage which bears the same ratio to 45 per centum as the square of the per capita income of such State bears to the square of the per capita income of the continental United States (including Alaska) and Hawaii; except that (1) the Federal medical assistance percentage shall in no case be less than 50 per centum or more than 83 per centum, (2) the Federal medical assistance percentage for Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa shall be 50 per centum. * * * Section 4725(b) of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 amended section 1905(b) to provide that the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage for the District of Columbia for purposes of titles XIX and XXI shall be 70 percent. For the District of Columbia, we note under the table of Federal Medical Assistance Percentages the rate that applies in certain other programs calculated using the formula otherwise applicable, and the rate that applies in certain other programs pursuant to section 1118 of the Social Security Act. Section 2105(b) of the Act specifies the formula for calculating the Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages as follows: The ‘‘enhanced FMAP’’, for a State for a fiscal year, is equal to the Federal medical assistance percentage (as defined in the first sentence of section 1905(b)) for the State increased by a number of percentage points equal to 30 percent of the number of percentage points by which (1) such Federal medical assistance percentage for the State, is less than (2) 100 percent; but in no case shall the enhanced FMAP for a State exceed 85 percent. The ‘‘Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages’’ are for use in the State Children’s Health Insurance Program under title XXI, and in the Medicaid program for certain children for expenditures for medical assistance described in sections 1905(u)(2) and 1905(u)(3) of the Act. There is no specific requirement to publish the Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages. We include them in this notice for the convenience of the States. DATES: Effective Dates: The percentages listed will be effective for each of the 4 quarter-year periods in the period beginning October 1, 2009 and ending September 30, 2010.

Federal Financial Participation in State Assistance Expenditures; 
Federal Matching Shares for Medicaid, the State Children's Health 
Insurance Program, and Aid to Needy Aged, Blind, or Disabled Persons 
for October 1, 2009 Through September 30, 2010

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, DHHS.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Medical Assistance Percentages and Enhanced 
Federal Medical Assistance Percentages for Fiscal Year 2010 have been 
calculated pursuant to the Social Security Act (the Act). These 
percentages will be effective from October 1, 2009 through September 
30, 2010. This notice announces the calculated ``Federal Medical 
Assistance Percentages'' and ``Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance 
Percentages'' that The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services 
(HHS) will use in determining the amount of Federal matching for State 
medical assistance (Medicaid) and State Children's Health Insurance 
Program (SCHIP) expenditures, and Temporary Assistance for Needy 
Families (TANF) Contingency Funds, the Federal share of Child Support 
Enforcement collections, Child Care Mandatory and Matching Funds of the 
Child Care and Development Fund, Foster Care Title IV-E Maintenance 
payments, and Adoption Assistance payments. The table gives figures for 
each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the 
Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the 
Northern Mariana Islands. Programs under title XIX of the Act exist in 
each jurisdiction. Programs under titles I, X, and XIV operate only in 
Guam and the Virgin Islands, while a program under title XVI (Aid to 
the Aged, Blind, or Disabled) operates only in Puerto Rico. Programs 
under title XXI began operating in fiscal year 1998. The percentages in 
this notice apply to State expenditures for most medical services and 
medical insurance services, and assistance payments for certain social 
services. The statute provides separately for Federal matching of 
administrative costs.
    Sections 1905(b) and 1101(a)(8)(B) of the Act require the 
Secretary, HHS to publish the Federal Medical Assistance Percentages 
each year. The Secretary is to calculate the percentages, using 
formulas in sections 1905(b) and 1101(a)(8)(B), from the Department of 
Commerce's statistics of average income per person in each State and 
for the Nation as a whole. The percentages are within the upper and 
lower limits given in section 1905(b) of the Act. The percentages to be 
applied to the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, 
Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands are specified in 
statute, and thus are not based on the statutory formula that 
determines the percentages for the 50 States.
    The ``Federal Medical Assistance Percentages'' are for Medicaid. 
Section 1905(b) of the Act specifies the formula for calculating 
Federal Medical Assistance Percentages as follows:

    ``Federal medical assistance percentage'' for any State shall be 
100 per centum less the State percentage; and the State percentage 
shall be that percentage which bears the same ratio to 45 per centum 
as the square of the per capita income of such State bears to the 
square of the per capita income of the continental United States 
(including Alaska) and Hawaii; except that (1) the Federal medical 
assistance percentage shall in no case be less than 50 per centum or 
more than 83 per centum, (2) the Federal medical assistance 
percentage for Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern 
Mariana Islands, and American Samoa shall be 50 per centum. * * *

    Section 4725(b) of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 amended section 
1905(b) to provide that the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage for 
the District of Columbia for purposes of titles XIX and XXI shall be 70 
percent. For the District of Columbia, we note under the table of 
Federal Medical Assistance Percentages the rate that applies in certain 
other programs calculated using the formula otherwise applicable, and 
the rate that applies in certain other programs pursuant to section 
1118 of the Social Security Act.
    Section 2105(b) of the Act specifies the formula for calculating 
the Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages as follows:

    The ``enhanced FMAP'', for a State for a fiscal year, is equal 
to the Federal medical assistance percentage (as defined in the 
first sentence of section 1905(b)) for the State increased by a 
number of percentage points equal to 30 percent of the number of 
percentage points by which (1) such Federal medical assistance 
percentage for the State, is less than (2) 100 percent; but in no 
case shall the enhanced FMAP for a State exceed 85 percent.

    The ``Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages'' are for use 
in the State Children's Health Insurance Program under title XXI, and 
in the Medicaid program for certain children for expenditures for 
medical assistance described in sections 1905(u)(2) and 1905(u)(3) of 
the Act. There is no specific requirement to publish the Enhanced 
Federal Medical Assistance Percentages. We include them in this notice 
for the convenience of the States.

DATES: Effective Dates: The percentages listed will be effective for 
each of the 4 quarter-year periods in the period beginning October 1, 
2009 and ending September 30, 2010.
