The rule, published by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and effective January 20, 2017, also finalizes eligibility guidelines for former foster care youth, income counting rules for medically needy individuals, and verification procedures for citizenship and immigration status. CMS also published a companion proposed rule on appeals and hearings for Medicaid and CHIP, seeking comments by January 23, 2017.
