Verify Eligibility Coverage Act
This bill allows a state to delay or deny an individual's initial eligibility for Medicaid benefits without providing a reasonable opportunity to submit evidence of a satisfactory immigration status or pending official verification of such status. A state that elects to provide a reasonable period for an individual to provide such evidence may not receive payment for amounts expended on the individual's medical assistance during that period.
In FY2020-FY2028, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, using the Medicaid Improvement Fund, shall pay a 90% Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (i.e., federal matching rate) to eligible states for home- and community-based services furnished under a state Medicaid waiver to patients who had been on a waiting list for such services.
