The Bush Administration has threatened a veto of H.R. 5613, the "Protecting the Medicaid Safety Net Act of 2008," which the House passed 349-62 on April 23. The bill would place a moratorium until April 1, 2009 on seven Medicaid regulations that the Administration has issued over the past year.

H.R. 5613 would delay regulations that restrict how Medicaid pays for hospital services, graduate medical education, outpatient services, school-based health services, services for individuals with disabilities and case management services.
