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 the federal data Hub or SAVE . See WAG 03-01-05 for SAVE procedures.
For medical programs, certify benefits for a person who reports to meet the citizenship or one of the Medicaid qualifying USCIS statuses listed in PM 03-01-02 b through i when they meet all other factors of eligibility and only proof citizenship or USCIS status is pending.
