Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Health Care Financing Administration's (HCFA) new rule on the Medicaid program. GAO noted that: (1) the rule would announce the federal fiscal year 1998 state allotments that are available to pay Medicare Part B premiums for two new eligibility groups and describe the the methodology used to determine each state's allotment; and (2) HCFA complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
