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. Most 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, most changes made were grammatical corrections and changes made to ensure consistency with other regulations. Further, one revision was made to clarify that the objection contained in 12 NYCRR § 325-6.4(b)(11) is only applicable to medical providers who are authorized by the Board to provide treatment to injured workers and who must adhere to the Medical Treatment Guidelines.
