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 March 1, 2013; 2) correct the web address for obtaining copies of the Medical Treatment Guidelines; 3) and add clarifying language regarding the time to file depositions when requesting review of a variance denial via an expedited hearing.
Please Note: The Board recommends using the latest version of Adobe Reader which is available as a free download from Adobe's web site.
