Hospital Medicaid Presumptive Eligibility


ObamaCare created a new path to waste, fraud, and abuse by expanding Medicaid presumptive eligibility to a new class of able-bodied adults and forcing states to implement it. As a result, ObamaCare’s “hospital presumptive eligibility” (HPE) policy mandates that states allow hospitals—the largest recipients of Medicaid funding—to determine if individuals are eligible for Medicaid on the basis of self-reported income.
