The House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health has approved two bills that would modify Medicaid eligibility rules to consider additional sources of income. First, HR 829 would establish standards for states to consider lottery winnings and other lump sum payments for purposes of determining Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) for Medicaid and CHIP eligibility.  Second, HR 181 would count half of the income from certain annuities of a community spouse as income available to institutionalized spouses for purposes of Medicaid eligibility.  The legislation now moves to the full Committee.
