H.R. 3891, a bill to amend title XIX of the Social Security Act to clarify the authority of state Medicaid fraud and abuse control units to investigate and prosecute cases of Medicaid patient abuse and neglect in any setting, and for other purposes
As ordered reported by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce on September 13, 2018
H.R. 3891 would allow states to use federal Medicaid funds to investigate and prosecute abuse and neglect of Medicaid beneficiaries in non-institutional settings. CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 3891 would increase direct spending by $117 million over the 2019-2028 period.
Enacting H.R. 3891 would affect direct spending; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. Enacting the bill would not affect revenues.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 3891 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits by more than $5 billion in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
H.R. 3891 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
