(Medical Assistance Reimbursement of Providers of Disposable Medical Supplies)
The State of Wisconsin reimburses providers for disposable medical supplies provided to Medical Assistance recipients. This is done under the authority of Title XIX of the Federal Social Security Act and ss. 49.43 to 49.47, Wisconsin Statutes. This program, administered by the State's Department of Health and Family Services, is called Medical Assistance (MA) or Medicaid. Federal statutes and regulations require that a state plan be developed that provides the methods and standards for reimbursement of covered services. A plan that describes the reimbursement system for the services (methods and standards for reimbursement) is now in effect.
This notice regarding reimbursement is not required under federal law, but is being published to convey information to the public. Effective August 1, 1996, the Department will modify the reimbursement system for disposable medical supplies to prevent excessive utilization and to establish controls on billing errors. The modifications include the following:
Limits will be placed on the quantities of disposable medical supplies which may be dispensed to a recipient.
Prior authorization will be required for quantities in excess of limits and for certain items which are particularly susceptible to abuse.
The estimated net effect of these modifications on expenditures of the Wisconsin Medical Assistance Program is to decrease spending in FY 1997 by $160,417 all funds ($96,250 federal financial participation and $64,167 general purpose revenue).

In the matter of the contribution liability, :

: Hearing No. S9500228MW
  Account No. 067446-9 :
Please take notice that the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, f/k/a the Department of Industry, Labor and Human Relations (department), pursuant to Wis. Stats., s. 108.10 (7) (b), has chosen to nonacquiesce in the decision of the Labor and Industry Review Commission (commission) dated June 21, 1996.
More specifically, the Department does not acquiesce in the commission's construction of s. 108.02 (15) (L), Wis. Stats., to permit a corporation to exclude from employe status an officer who has deliberately chosen not to obtain any of the corporate stock or to otherwise have an ownership interest in the corporation. Accordingly, pursuant to s. 108.10 (7) (a), Wis. Stats., the department does not intend to follow or apply the commission's decision in this case in other cases, and the department will not be bound in other cases by the commission's decision in this case.

(Tax Appeals Commission)

v. :
Docket No. 94-S-209

Respondent. :
Pursuant to s. 73.01 (4) (e) 2., Stats., the respondent hereby gives notice that, although it is not appealing the Order of the Tax Appeals Commission rendered in the above-captioned matter dated April 23, 1996, as affected by the Correction Order dated May 3, 1996 and the Decision and Order Upon Rehearing dated July 15, 1996, it has adopted a position of nonacquiescence in regard to those parts of the Order which reverse the assessment for use tax on equipment and other items not incorporated, consumed or destroyed in performing testing services on work-in-process samples for manufacturers. The effect of this action is that, although said Order is binding on the parties for the instant case, the Commission's conclusions of law, the rationale and construction of statutes with regard to exemption for equipment and other items not incorporated, consumed or destroyed in performing testing services on work-in-process samples for manufacturers are not binding upon or required to be followed by the respondent in other cases.
