Description

DMAS; Medicaid eligibility and application. Directs the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) to require Medicaid eligibility workers to (i) apply the same protocols when verifying income for all Medicaid applicants and recipients whose assets are subject to an asset limit under Medicaid eligibility requirements, including those applicants and recipients who report no earned or unearned income, and (ii) search for unreported assets using all available sources of electronic data, including local real estate property databases, the Department of Motor Vehicles, and Virginia's asset verification system. The bill also requires DMAS to amend the Virginia Medicaid application, after obtaining approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, to require a Medicaid applicant to opt out if such applicant does not want to grant permission to the state to use his federal tax returns for the purposes of renewing eligibility.
