ACTION: Notice of Opportunity for a Hearing Compliance of Arkansas Medicaid State Plan—Provision of Benefits During a Reasonable Opportunity Period. AGENCY: Requests to participate in the hearing as a party must be received by the presiding officer by August 29, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Benjamin R. Cohen, Hearing Officer, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, 2520 Lord Baltimore Drive, Suite L, Baltimore, MD 21244. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces the opportunity for an administrative hearing concerning the finding of the Administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that the State of Arkansas is not providing Medicaid benefits during a reasonable opportunity period. Section 1902(a)(46) of the Social Security Act (the Act) requires state plans for medical assistance to provide ‘‘that information is requested and exchanged for purposes of income and eligibility verification in accordance with a State system which meets the requirements of section 1137 of this Act.’’ Section 1137(d) of the Act and regulations at 42 CFR 435.911(c) require that the state agency provide a reasonable opportunity period to individuals who are determined otherwise eligible for Medicaid but for whom the state agency is unable to promptly verify satisfactory immigration status. In its approved State Plan Amendment (SPA) 13–0018, the Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS) provides assurance that it provides Medicaid to citizens and nationals of the United States and to certain non-citizens, including during a reasonable opportunity period pending verification of their citizenship, national status or satisfactory immigration status, in accordance with the requirements of sections 1902(a)(46), 1902(ee), 1903(x) and 1137(d) of the Act. Despite such CLOSING DATE: PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 assurance in the Medicaid state plan, it is CMS’ understanding based on numerous discussions and interactions with the state that Arkansas is not providing Medicaid benefits to individuals who declared under penalty of perjury that they are in a satisfactory immigration status, have met all other eligibility requirements for Medicaid in the state, and are pending verification of their immigration status. With a formal determination by the CMS Administrator that the Arkansas DHS has failed to comply substantially with these requirements, made after a hearing or absent a hearing request, CMS will begin this FFP withholding and it will continue until the Arkansas DHS comes into compliance with the requirement to provide Medicaid benefits during a reasonable opportunity period for otherwise eligible noncitizens who have declared under penalty of perjury that they are in a satisfactory immigration status. Arkansas submitted state plan amendment (SPA) Transmittal Number 13–0018 on September 23, 2013, which described the Arkansas DHS’s policies and practices related to citizenship and non-citizen eligibility, including the assurance that the Arkansas DHS provides Medicaid benefits during the reasonable opportunity period to individuals who have declared under penalty of perjury that they are in a satisfactory immigration status pending verification of such status. During the review of this SPA, CMS learned that the Arkansas DHS was not providing Medicaid benefits during a reasonable opportunity period to individuals who have declared under penalty of perjury that they are in a satisfactory immigration status and who meet all other eligibility requirements in the state, pending verification of such status. Throughout 2014 and 2015, CMS and Arkansas engaged in extensive technical assistance discussions. CMS sent a letter to the Arkansas DHS on April 1, 2015, reiterating the requirement for Arkansas to comply with the statute and regulations. During this time, CMS received multiple draft corrective action plans (CAPs) from Arkansas that set out schedules to come into compliance with section 1137(d) of the Act by July 1, 2014, October 2015, April 2016, and, most recently, August 2016. On November 3, 2015, CMS approved Arkansas’ SPA 13–0018. At the same time, CMS issued a companion letter informing Arkansas that, if it did not demonstrate compliance with these requirements within 30 days of the date of the letter, CMS would initiate formal compliance proceedings.
