To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 3473), memorializing the Congress of the United States to allow an option under the Medicaid program, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
RICHARD M. QUINN, JR., for Committee.
MEMORIALIZING THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES TO ALLOW AN OPTION UNDER THE MEDICAID PROGRAM PERMITTING CONTINUED MEDICAID COVERAGE FOR PERIODS OF AT LEAST A YEAR AFTER A SEVERELY DISABLED SSI RECIPIENT GAINS COMPETITIVE EMPLOYMENT AND LOSES SSI ELIGIBILITY AS A RESULT OF THE FORMER RECIPIENT'S EARNINGS LEVEL AND TO FURTHER MEMORIALIZE CONGRESS TO ALLOW THIS STATE TO CREATE A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT ALLOWING THE PURCHASE OF MEDICAID COVERAGE THROUGH A SLIDING PREMIUM SCALE BASED ON INCOME FOR PERSONS WITH SEVERE DISABILITIES WHO ARE COMPETITIVELY EMPLOYED BUT WITHOUT ACCESS TO EMPLOYER PROVIDED HEALTH INSURANCE.
Be it resolved by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina that the Congress of the United States is memorialized to allow an option under the Medicaid program permitting continued Medicaid coverage for periods of at least a year after a severely disabled SSI recipient gains competitive employment and loses SSI eligibility as a result of the former recipient's earnings level.
Be it further resolved that the Congress of the United States is memorialized to allow this State to create a demonstration project allowing the purchase of Medicaid coverage through a sliding premium scale based on income for persons with severe disabilities who are competitively employed, but without access to employer provided health insurance.
Be it further resolved that copies of this resolution be forwarded to the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, the President of the United States Senate, and each member of this state's Congressional Delegation.
