2016 – TSGAC – Comments on Catastrophic Health Emergency Fund Proposed Rule (RIN 0905-AC97)

Comments submitted on the Catastrophic Health Emergency Funding (CHEF) proposed rule. This proposed rule would establish definitions governing CHEF; a requirement that a Service Unit shall not qualify for reimbursement for the cost of treatment until the cost of the episode of care has reached a certain threshold; a procedure for reimbursement for certain services
exceeding a threshold cost; a procedure for payment for certain cases; and, a procedure to ensure payment will not occur from CHEF if other sources of payment (Federal, State, local, or private) are available
