Medicaid ID Rule takes effect

I’m not sure what impact this will have in Alaska, except to add paperwork. The state of Alaska shoved as much of their Medicaid obligations to rural citizens as possible onto the Feds through the mechanism of closing all rural state programs and getting the tribal corporate health consortia to pick them up directly.

    …and people who cannot communicate due to Alzheimer’s, mental illness or hospitalization.

    Sister Libby Fernandez, executive director of Loaves & Fishes, said many of the people who come to the Sacramento homeless services complex don’t have copies of their birth certificates or a Social Security card.

    “They usually lose everything when they lose their housing, especially paperwork,” she said. “They barely have the clothes on their back. And then, to even get a birth certificate costs money.”

    Another group likely to be affected are those who were never given birth certificates, advocates say.

    In particular, many elderly African Americans were born at home because hospitals would not receive them, Ross said. As a result, they were never given birth certificates….
