The Georgia State Senate has approved a bill that would require senior citizens in the state to acquire a biometric ID card to access Medicaid for health care, according to a WSBTV article.
The new bill, which passed on a 34-21 margin, stipulates the use of fingerprint biometrics for each of the ID cards.
The new measure was introduced as a way to curb Medicaid fraud in the state.
