MaineCare

  • MaineCare (modified: 9 months ago)
    Maine is requesting to implement work requirements as a condition of eligibility, monthly premiums for specific populations, and requiring co-pays for certain procedures that qualify as non-emergency usage of emergency rooms. In addition, Maine proposes to use asset tests in eligibility determinations and applying a transfer penalty to Medicaid-compliant annuities. Finally, Maine proposes to terminate the hospital presumptive eligibility policy option and providing initial non-long-term retroactive eligibility. The federal public comment period will be open from August 17, 2017 through September 16, 2017.
