DATE: JULY 2, 2002
Manual: Aged, Blind, and Disabled Medicaid
Change No: 04 - 03
To: County Directors of Social Services
Effective: August 1, 2002
DMA is revising policy regarding the issuance of replacement Medicaid cards. It will no longer be necessary to remove the pharmacy stub before issuing a duplicate card in the following aid program categories: MIC, HSF and IAS. For child only Work First and MAF cases, the pharmacy stub will not need to be removed when issuing a duplicate card. These recipients are not limited to the 6 prescription limit per month. You must still remove the pharmacy stub for all other categories of Medicaid. In revising MA-2380, DMA adopted the format that was recommended and implemented as a result of the work done by the NC FAST (Families Accessing Services through Technology) Family and Children’s Policy Simplification Work Group. MA-2380 now mirrors the Medicaid Identification Card section of the Family and Children’s Medicaid Manual.
Also, during the county transfer process, you do not have to send a returned or replacement card to the second county. You may mail it directly to the recipient.
This change is effective August 1, 2002.
