Public Comment

Medium

The North Dakota Department of Human Services is seeking public comment on the 1915(i) Medicaid State Plan Amendment Application Draft. The Application Draft describes who is eligible, the process for enrollment, what services are available, what providers can render services, and how quality will be assured.

During the public comment period, interested parties are encouraged to review the draft application and provide feedback. Once the public comment period closes appropriate changes will be made to the draft application before submission to the Centers for Medicaid Services (CMS). Following submission, CMS and DHS will engage in a back and forth process of feedback and revisions until CMS grants final approval of the application.
