Federal financial participation in state assistance expenditures; federal matching shares for aid to families with dependent children, Medicaid, and aid to aged, blind, or disabled persons for October 1, 1997 through October 1, 1998 and for October 1, 1998 through September 30, 1999; clarification and correction--HHS. Notice of clarification and correction.
This Notice clarifies the status of Alaska and the District of Columbia shown in the Tables of Federal Medical Assistance percentages calculated for determining the amount of Federal matching in State-welfare and medical expenditures for Fiscal Years 1998 and 1999 and corrects an error for the District of Columbia for 1999. For Medicaid and for the Child Health Insurance Program, the percentages given in the notices are correct. For other uses, including the remaining Title IV programs, the Alaskan percentage for 1998 should be 50.00% and for 1999 should be 52.26%. The District of Columbia percentage should be 50.00% for both years.
