The House Energy and Commerce Committee today held the first of two subcommittee hearings this week on Medicaid. Today’s hearing by the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee focused on ways to strengthen Medicaid oversight and included witnesses from the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General, Government Accountability Office, The Manhattan Institute, The Foundation for Government Accountability, and Georgetown University Law Center. On Wednesday, the Health Subcommittee is scheduled to examine draft legislation that would require states to consider certain lump sum payments when determining modified adjusted gross income for Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program eligibility; restrict states from using federal matching funds to provide Medicaid services to individuals before verifying their citizenship or legal immigration status; and count certain income from annuities when determining a spouse’s Medicaid eligibility for long-term care.
