Regulation Review and Impact Analysis Report (RRIAR)

The purpose of the Regulation Review and Impact Analysis Report (RRIAR) is to identify and summarize key regulations issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) pertaining to Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, and health reform that affect (a) American Indians and Alaska Natives and/or (b) Indian Health Service, Indian Tribe and tribal organization, and urban Indian organization providers. Furthermore, the RRIAR includes a summary of the regulatory analyses prepared by the National Indian Health Board (NIHB), if any, and indicates the extent to which the recommendations made by NIHB were incorporated into any subsequent CMS actions. The RRIAR is updated at the end of each month.
