This section provides procedures for verifying citizen/U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) status and other citizen/USCIS requirements.
For a person born outside of the U.S., include in the case record the items used to establish their citizen/USCIS status under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). For medical programs, documentation to verify U.S. citizenship and identity is required. See PM 03-01-01-b and PM 03-01-01-c for documentation requirements.
If a person is not a citizen, USCIS status must also be verified through SAVE. See WAG 03-01-05 for SAVE procedures.
