(2) The amount of the tax is not directly correlated to Medicaid payments; and
(3) The tax program does not fall within the hold harmless provisions specified in § 433.68(f).
(c) Effective date. A waiver will be effective:
(1) The date of enactment of the tax for programs in existence prior to August 13, 1993 or;
(2) For tax programs commencing on or after August 13, 1993, on the first day in the quarter in which the waiver is received by CMS.
