Status of federal bill aiming to change Medicaid recovery practices

Is the Stop Unfair Medicaid Recoveries Act of 2022 something that is still going forward?

This bill is intended to stop Medicaid from recouping costs from the survivors of beneficiaries. (Here's a story about it from Minnesota.)

None of the sponsors or cosponsors are my reps, so I don't think I can use their web forms. (Or maybe I can? But I don't think so with an address outside the district.)

Thanks for any information at all about this bill, or similar bills moving through, or struck down in, statehouses.

Best answer: That bill was introduced in the 117th Congress, which ended in January 2023. Since it was not enacted, and that Congress has ended, the bill has “died” and a new bill would need to be introduced for the current Congress to vote on it.

The previous bill had no Republican sponsors and did not make it out of committee. I haven’t seen any news of any current bills that incorporate the same language.
