ABSTRACT
The article reports on the response of U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) officials to complaints about the Deficit Reduction Act which requires Medicaid recipients to prove that they are U.S. citizens. According to the officials, they are changing the requirement and will now say that all babies born in the U.S. whose deliveries are covered by Medicaid may remain eligible for Medicaid under certain circumstances for up to one year after their birth.
