      NECESSITY, FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: The Cabinet for Human Resources has responsibility to administer the program of Medical Assistance. KRS 205.520 empowers the cabinet, by administrative regulation, to comply with any requirement that may be imposed, or opportunity presented, by federal law for the provision of medical assistance to Kentucky's indigent citizenry. This administrative regulation sets forth the method for determining amounts payable by the cabinet for family planning services.

      Section 2. Amount of Payment. Reimbursement in accordance with the flat fee schedule shall be at the following rates:

      (1) For services provided by a physician: initial clinic visit, fifty (50) dollars; annual clinic visit, sixty (60) dollars; follow-up visit with pelvic examination, twenty-five (25) dollars; and follow-up visit without pelvic examination, twenty (20) dollars.

      (2) For services provided by an advanced registered nurse practitioner with appropriate training as specified by the cabinet: initial clinic visit, thirty-seven (37) dollars and seventy-five (75) cents; annual clinic visit, forty-five (45) dollars; follow-up visit with pelvic examination, eighteen (18) dollars and seventy-five (75) cents; and follow-up visit without pelvic examination, fifteen (15) dollars.
