Short Abstract:   S. 1200 includes an amendment added on the Senate floor which places a 13-month moratorium on implementation of the CMS Targeted Case Management regulations that are otherwise scheduled to become effective March 3, 2008.  The amendment (# 4023) adopted by voice vote during the Feb. 14 debate, is the same as S. 2578, (Coleman and Klobuchar with 19 co-sponsors) and H.R. 5173 (Ellison and 30 co-sponsors).  The effort to prevent these regulations from taking effect has strong support from a number of social services, mental health and disability groups.
