§ 430.48 Repayment of Federal funds by installments.
(a) Basic conditions. When Federal payments have been made for claims that are later found to be unallowable, the State may repay the Federal funds by installments if all of the following conditions are met:
(1) The amount to be repaid exceeds 0.25 percent of the estimated or actual annual State share for the Medicaid program.
(2) The State has given the Regional Office written notice, before total repayment was due, of its intent to repay by installments.
(b) Annual State share determination. CMS determines whether the amount to be repaid exceeds 0.25 percent of the annual State share as follows:
(1) If the Medicaid program is ongoing, CMS uses the annual estimated State share of Medicaid expenditures for the current year, as shown on the State's latest Medicaid Program Budget Report (CMS-37). The current year is the year in which the State requests the repayment by installments.
(2) If the Medicaid program has been terminated by Federal law or by the State, CMS uses the actual State share that is shown on the State's CMS-64 Quarterly Expense Report for the last four quarters filed.
(c) Standard Repayment amounts, schedules, and procedures—
(1) Repayment amount. The repayment amount may not include any amount previously approved for installment repayment.
(2) Repayment schedule. The maximum number of quarters allowed for the standard repayment schedule is 12 quarters (3 years), except as provided in paragraphs (c)(4) and (e) of this section.
(3) Quarterly repayment amounts.
(i) The quarterly repayment amounts for each of the quarters in the repayment schedule will be the larger of the repayment amount divided by 12 quarters or the minimum repayment amount;
(ii) The minimum quarterly repayment amounts for each of the quarters in the repayment schedule is 0.25 percent of the estimated State share of the current annual expenditures for Medicaid;
(iii) The repayment period may be less than 12 quarters when the minimum repayment amount is required.
(4) Extended schedule.
(i) The repayment schedule may be extended beyond 12 quarterly installments if the total repayment amount exceeds 100 percent of the estimated State share of the current annual expenditures;
(ii) The quarterly repayment amount will be 81/3 percent of the estimated State share of the current annual expenditures until fully repaid.
(5) Repayment process.
(i) Repayment is accomplished through deposits into the State's Payment Management System (PMS) account;
(ii) A State may choose to make payment by Automated Clearing House (ACH) direct deposit, by check, or by Fedwire transfer.
(6) Reductions. If the State chooses to repay amounts representing higher percentages during the early quarters, any corresponding reduction in required minimum percentages is applied first to the last scheduled payment, then to the next to the last payment, and so forth as necessary.
(d) Alternate repayment amounts, schedules, and procedures for States experiencing economic distress immediately prior to the repayment period—
(1) Repayment amount. The repayment amount may not include amounts previously approved for installment repayment if a State initially qualifies for the alternate repayment schedule at the onset of an installment repayment period.
(2) Qualifying period of economic distress.
(i) A State will qualify to avail itself of the alternate repayment schedule if it demonstrates the State is experiencing a period of economic distress;
(ii) A period of economic distress is one in which the State demonstrates distress for at least each of the previous 6 months, ending the month prior to the date of the State's written request for an alternate repayment schedule, as determined by a negative percent change in the monthly Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank State coincident index.
(3) Repayment schedule. The maximum number of quarters allowed for the alternate repayment schedule is 12 quarters (3 years), except as provided in paragraph (d)(5) of this section.
(4) Quarterly repayment amounts.
(i) The quarterly repayment amounts for each of the first 8 quarters in the repayment schedule will be the smaller of the repayment amount divided by 12 quarters or the maximum quarterly repayment amount;
(ii) The maximum quarterly repayment amounts for each of the first 8 quarters in the repayment schedule is 0.25 percent of the annual State share determination as defined in paragraph (b) of this section;
(iii) For the remaining 4 quarters, the quarterly repayment amount equals the remaining balance of the overpayment amount divided by the remaining 4 quarters.
(5) Extended schedule.
(i) For a State that initiated its repayment under an alternate payment schedule for economic distress, the repayment schedule may be extended beyond 12 quarterly installments if the total repayment amount exceeds 100 percent of the estimated State share of current annual expenditures;
(A) In these circumstances, paragraph (d)(3) of this section is followed for repayment of the amount equal to 100 percent of the estimated State share of current annual expenditures.
(B) The remaining amount of the repayment is in quarterly amounts equal to 81/3 percent of the estimated State share of current annual expenditures until fully repaid.
(ii) Upon request by the State, the repayment schedule may be extended beyond 12 quarterly installments if the State has qualifying periods of economic distress in accordance with paragraph (d)(2) of this section during the first 8 quarters of the alternate repayment schedule.
(A) To qualify for additional quarters, the States must demonstrate a period of economic distress in accordance with paragraph (d)(2) of this section for at least 1 month of a quarter during the first 8 quarters of the alternate repayment schedule.
(B) For each quarter (of the first 8 quarters of the alternate payment schedule) identified as qualified period of economic distress, one quarter will be added to the remaining 4 quarters of the original 12 quarter repayment period.
