Medicaid HOME Improvement Act

Official Title

To amend title XIX of the Social Security Act to eliminate the State option to reduce the home equity exemption amount for purposes of eligibility for long-term care assistance under Medicaid, and for other purposes.


Medicaid Home Owner Maximum Equity Improvement Act or the Medicaid HOME Improvement Act This bill amends title XIX (Medicaid) of the Social Security Act to disallow a state from using, for purposes of determining Medicaid eligibility for long-term care assistance, a home equity limit that exceeds the statutory minimum. Current law allows a state Medicaid program to set its maximum home equity limit at any amount between a specified range. The bill disallows a program from setting its limit above the amount that represents, under current law, the bottom of that range.
