CMS Seeks Comments on Income Calculation for Medicaid Eligibility

June 26, 2012

On June 21, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it is seeking public comment on methodologies for determining income for people applying for Medicaid under the expanded eligibility guidelines schedules to go into effect under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Under the ACA, an income test based on the applicant's modified adjusted gross income will replace current eligibility standards that are not income-based (such as pregnant women or supplemental security income recipients).

The deadline to submit comments is July 23.
