Adoption and Implementation of the Medical Treatment Guidelines

Rural Area Flexibility Analysis for the addition of Part 324 and § 325-1.25, amendment of
§§ 325-1.2, 325-1.3, 325-1.4, and 315-1.24, and repeal of § 325-1.6 of 12 NYCRR

Statement explaining why a revised Rural Area Flexibility Analysis is not required

A revised Rural Area Flexibility Analysis is not required because the changes made to the last published rule do not necessitate revision to the previously published document. The changes to the text are not substantial, do not change the meaning of any provision and therefore do not change any statements in the document. Specifically the changes are to: 1) change the effective date to December 1, 2010; 2) correct typographical errors; 3) add clarifying language; and 4) reword provisions noted as being unclear in the comments on the proposed regulation to ensure that they are clearly understood.
