SUMMARY: On May 28, 2010, the Office of Management and Budgets (OMB) published guideline 1 of the Reduction of Procedures Act (PRA) related to the “generic” liquidation process.

On October 23, 2011, OMB approved our initial request to use the generic clearing process with control number 0938-1148 (CMS-10398). It was last approved on April 26, 2021, through the standard PRA process that included the publication of 60- and 30-day federal registry notices. The scope of the April 2021 umbrella explains the modifications, waivers, demonstrations, and reports of the state Medicaid and CHIP plan. This notice from the federal registry solicits public comments on one or more of our requests for information that we consider generic and that are part of the scope of the umbrella.
