Title: Premiums and Cost Sharing (CMS-2244-FC) 
Abstract: This final rule revises the November 25, 2008, final rule entitled, “Medicaid Programs; Premiums and Cost Sharing (73 FR 71828),” that implemented and interpreted provisions of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (DRA) and the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 (TRHCA). In addition, this final rule responds to public comments on the November 25, 2008 final rule which were received after a notice was published on January 27, 2009 to reopen the comment period and temporarily delay for 60 days the effective date of the final rule and after a notice was published on March 27, 2009, to reopen the comment period and delay the final rule’s effective date until December 31, 2009. This final rule also solicits public comments on revisions proposed to the final rule in response to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the Recovery Act), which was enacted during the temporary delay of the November 25, 2008, final rule.
