NHeLP Comments on HHS SUNSET Repeal Rule

Executive Summary

In the HHS SUNSET final rule, HHS sought to retroactively impose a mandatory expiration date on an estimated 18,000 duly promulgated regulations. Even long-standing rules would be automatically rescinded unless they survive a complex process of assessment and review. If implemented, programs like Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) would be devastated if important regulations are arbitrarily rescinded. In comments, NHeLP strongly supports the repeal of the HHS SUNSET final rule.
