ments in Medicaid. It also places a new moratorium on a rule that limits the outpatient hospital services that states may provide in Medicaid. The agreement will extend these moratoria to July 1, 2009, giving the Obama Administration time to rescind these regulations. Yesterday, MHPA signed a letter with 79 other organizations urging House and Senate negotiators to include the moratoria.

MHPA had also supported including a two-year extension of a grandfather clause contained in the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 allowing eight states to maintain stable financing mechanisms already in place for Medicaid funding. While not contained in this bill, MHPA urged Congress to extend this provision before it expires on October 1, 2009.

"While disappointed the grandfather clause was not included, we look forward to working with Congress to include it elsewhere to maintain a reliable funding source for low-income health care," said Johnson.

Medicaid Health Plans of America or "MHPA" is the leading trade association solely focused on representing Medicaid health plans.
