62J.22 PARTICIPATION OF FEDERAL PROGRAMS.
The commissioner of health shall seek the full participation of federal health care programs
under this chapter, including Medicare, medical assistance, veterans administration programs,
and other federal programs. The commissioner of human services shall submit waiver requests
and take other action necessary to obtain federal approval to allow participation of the medical
assistance program. If federal approval is not given for one or more federal programs, data on the
amount of health care spending that is collected under section
shall be adjusted so that state
and regional spending limits take into account the failure of the federal program to participate.
