Summary
Update Supersedes S&C: 11-42-NH.Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Beginning January 1, 2012, States must obtain prior approval from CMS for the use of federally imposed CMP funds. Effective January 1, 2012 CMS approval is required for any new project, new grantee, or new use of federally imposed CMP funds, as well as for any previously State-approved use or project that is planned or approved for a period that will endure more than 36 months from December 31, 2011. Current State-approved CMP projects or uses that a State has in effect prior to January 1, 2012 do not require retrospective CMS approval so long as the project, grantee, use or purpose is not planned to endure for a period of more than 36 months from December 31, 2011. If the period of performance is planned or approved for a period of more than 36 months, then the project must receive CMS approval.
