Below is an excerpt:

Days before the Obama administration sent a sweeping managed Medicaid finalized rule that included the MLR to the Office of Management and Budget for review, it released a legislative proposal deep down in its fiscal 2017 budget that would give the CMS explicit authority to mandate that states recoup funds when a Medicaid managed-care organization, or MCO, fails to meet the MLR threshold.
