                                 A BILL

  To provide for continuing Federal reimbursement of emergency health 
    services furnished to illegal aliens through foreign aid funds.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,


    This Act may be cited as the ``Country of Origin Healthcare 
Accountability Act''.


    Congress finds the following:
            (1) The Census Bureau estimates that some 8 million illegal 
        aliens reside in the United States, and health care treatment 
        of illegal aliens imposes a substantial cost on medical 
        providers and hospitals in numerous communities across America.
            (2) American citizens should not be forced to pay for the 
        treatment of illegal aliens, particularly when many Americans 
        already struggle to pay their own medical expenses. 
        Consequently, the cost of treatment of illegal aliens should be 
        borne as a reduction in assistance provided to foreign 


    (a) Availability of Funds.--Of the amounts appropriated for any 
fiscal year (beginning with fiscal year 2009) to carry out the 
provisions of sections 103, 105, 106, and 131, and chapter 10 of part I 
of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, $250,000,000 shall be available 
to the Secretary of Health and Human Services for the purpose of making 
allotments under the provisions referred to in subsection (b) for 
payments to eligible providers in States. Funds made available under 
the previous sentence for a fiscal year shall remain available until 
    (b) Use of Funds.--The provisions of subsections (b) through (e) of 
section 1011 of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and 
Modernization Act of 2003 (Public Law 108-173) shall apply to amounts 
made available for a fiscal year under subsection (a) in the same 
manner as they apply to amounts appropriated for a fiscal year under 
subsection (a) of such section.
