§3174-CC. Medicaid eligibility during incarceration

The department shall establish procedures to ensure that a person receiving federally approved Medicaid services prior to incarceration does not lose Medicaid eligibility as a result of that incarceration, even if Medicaid coverage is limited during the period of incarceration. Nothing in this section requires or permits the department to maintain an incarcerated person's Medicaid eligibility if the person no longer meets eligibility requirements. [2001, c. 659, Pt. B, §1 (NEW).]
