BILL NUMBER:A6357

TITLE  OF BILL:   An act to amend the social services law, in relation
to imposing a ninety day residency  requirement  for  eligibility  for
medical assistance

PURPOSE  AND  JUSTIFICATION: This bill would impose a ninety-day state
residency requirement for eligibility for Medicaid  program  services.
New  York has one of the most generous Medicaid programs in the United
States. People from other states have taken advantage of this  state's
generosity  towards  it  residents  and purposefully moved to New York
solely for the benefit of its charitable social programs.  Imposing  a
ninety-day  state residency requirement before allowing individuals to
qualify for New York's Medicaid program would  discourage  individuals
from  moving to the state solely for the purpose of receiving Medicaid
while preserving Medicaid services for the people who  have  made  New
York their home.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 - Amends Sec. 117 of the Social Services Law by adding a new
subdivision  4  to impose a ninety-day state residency requirement for
eligibility for Medicaid.

Section 2 - Effective date.

A.5463.

FISCAL  IMPLICATIONS:  Yet  to  be  determined.  Cost  savings to both

twentieth  day after it shall have become a law. Effective immediately
