E. The Department of Medical Assistance Services shall make the monthly capitation payment to managed care organizations for the member months of each month in the first week of the subsequent month.


F. If any part, section, subsection, paragraph, clause, or phrase of this Item or the application thereof is declared by the United States Department of Health and Human Services or the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to be in conflict with a federal law or regulation, such decisions shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this Item, which shall remain in force as if this Item had passed without the conflicting part, section, subsection, paragraph, clause, or phrase.  Further, if the United States Department of Health and Human Services or the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services determines that the process for accomplishing the intent of a part, section, subsection, paragraph, clause, or phrase of this Item is out of compliance or in conflict with federal law and regulation and recommends another method of accomplishing the same intent, the Director, Department of Medical Assistance Services, after consultation with the Attorney General, is authorized to pursue the alternative method.


G. The Department of Medical Assistance Services shall have authority to amend the Virginia State Plan for Title XXI of the Social Security Act and the Virginia Health Insurance Flexibility and Accountability (HIFA) Waiver to require that Family Access to Medical Insurance Security (FAMIS) and FAMIS MOMS applicants and enrollees furnish their Social Security numbers as a condition of eligibility  in order to have citizenship and identity verified by the Social Security Administration, unless the applicant is otherwise exempt from this requirement.  The department shall have the authority to implement this change prior to the completion of any regulatory process undertaken in order to effect such change.


H. The Department of Medical Assistance Services is directed to develop enrollment and retention provisions, consistent with those outlined in Section 104 of the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Reauthorization Act of 2009, P.L. 111-3, and implement provisions determined to be budget-neutral, cost-effective or that would lead to an award of a CHIP performance bonus.
