Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Indian Health Service.

ACTION:

Final Rule; Correction.

SUMMARY:

This document corrects a final rule published on October 28, 1999, governing eligibility for services from the Indian Health Service. In that rule, HHS renumbered and suspended the regulations that were, and continue to be under a Congressional moratorium. This correction clarifies that only subparts A through G of part 36 (as it appears in the Code of Federal Regulations edition of October 1, 1999) were intended to be moved to the renumbered part and suspended.

DATES:

Effective October 28, 1999.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the Federal Register of October 28, 1999 (64 FR 58318), The Indian Health Service (we) intended to republish the eligibility regulations that were still in effect due to a Congressional moratorium but which no longer appeared in the Code of Federal Regulations. We also intended to renumber the rules subject to the moratorium from part 36 to part 36a and suspend them. However, in the amendatory instructions, we did not specify that only subparts A through G were being renumbered as part 36a and suspended while subparts H through J remained in the current part 36.
