State was permitted to terminate Petitioner’s participation in the Medically Fragile Daycare (MFD) component of the Georgia Pediatric Program (GAPP).  While Petitioner may need supplemental oxygen on occasion, he has an established regimen of therapy.  In such a case, the administration of oxygen is not considered a skilled nursing service under the federal regulations, rendering Petitioner ineligible for GAPP-MFD services.
