The House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee today approved legislation that would count certain income when determining eligibility for Medicaid. H.R. 829, approved 20-12 as amended, would require states to consider certain lump sum payments when determining modified adjusted gross income for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. H.R. 181, approved 19-13, would count certain income from annuities when determining a spouse’s Medicaid eligibility for long-term care. The bills can now be considered by the full committee.
