A06357 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A6357
 
SPONSOR: Schimminger (MS)
  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 sole- ly for the benefit of its charitable social programs. Imposing a nine- ty-day state residency requirement before allowing individuals to quali- fy 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.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2013-2014: A.2029/S.1125; 2011-2012: A.2343/S.1814; 2009-2010: A.6779/S.6863; 2007-2008: A.4672; 2005-2006: A.5463.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Yet to be determined. Cost savings to both coun- ties and the State are expected.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the one hundred twenti- eth day after it shall have become a law. Effective immediately the Commissioner of Health is authorized to promulgate any and all rules and regulations and take any other measures necessary to implement this act on its effective date on or before such date.
