    (B) an undocumented non-qualifying alien as described in 8 U.S.C. §1611;

  (2) be otherwise eligible for regular Medicaid services; and

  (3) require treatment of an emergency medical condition as described in 42 CFR §440.255.

(c) An undocumented non-qualifying alien applying for Medicaid for the treatment of an emergency medical condition is exempt from providing proof of alien status or providing a Social Security number as described in 42 CFR §435.406(b).
