Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Social Security Administration.

Start Printed Page 54350

ACTION:

Final rule; correcting amendment.

SUMMARY:

This document contains a correction to the final rules that were published in the Federal Register on September 5, 2007 (72 FR 50871). The final rules amended our regulations to reflect two provisions of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 that affect the payment of benefits under title XVI of the Social Security Act (the Act). One of the provisions extended temporary institutionalization benefits to children receiving SSI benefits who enter private medical treatment facilities and who otherwise would be ineligible for temporary institutionalization benefits because of private insurance coverage. The other provision replaced obsolete terminology in the Act that referred to particular kinds of medical facilities and substituted a broader, more descriptive term.

DATES:

Effective on October 5, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The final rule published on September 5, 2007 and effective October 5, 2007 included changes in terminology in § 416.414(a)(1), (2) and (3). These changes were inadvertently removed from the final rule published on September 5, 2007. This correction now shows that the terminology should be changed in those three subordinate paragraphs.
