Discussion: Given that the provisions in §303.500 address
the general requirements for each State’s fiscal policies,
we have moved the provision in proposed §303.521(a),
concerning the general option that a State may establish a system of payments (i.e., financial sources such as insurance or family fees to pay for Part C services), to
§303.500(b) and renumbered the other provisions in §303.521
accordingly. We have added the term “premiums” to the
examples of cost participation fees for clarity in
Changes: We have renumbered proposed §303.500 as
§303.500(a) and moved the general requirement in the
introductory text of proposed §303.521(a) to §303.500(b).
We also added the phrase “system of payments” to the
heading of §303.500 and the word “premiums” to §303.500(b).
Permissive use of funds by the lead agency (§303.501)
Discussion: To ensure that the use of funds requirements
in §303.501 are also subject to other fiscal application
requirements in §§303.120 through 303.122 and §§303.220
through 303.226 (concerning fiscal assurances each State must include in its application for funds), we have added
references to these other fiscal provisions in §§303.120
