Rules

AHS Health Care Administrative Rules. This link will take you to The Agency of Human Services Health Care Administrative Rules (HCAR) page to view the regulations adopted by the Agency of Human Services that govern the administration of Vermont Medicaid.

The Agency of Human Services is undertaking a comprehensive revision of Medicaid rules across the Agency of Human Services and its Departments. The Medicaid Covered Services Rules above will be amended and adopted under the title of Health Care Administrative Rules (HCAR). This is a multi-year process, and during this transition phase, some Medicaid rules will remain in the Medicaid Covered Services Rules (7100 - 7700), while other rules will be adopted in the new HCAR collection of Medicaid rules.
